Join our team of volunteers
Volunteers are ordinary people with an extraordinary love and common concern for others.
The HomeCare & Hospice Foundation Volunteers
The HomeCare & Hospice Foundation Volunteers serve to support the fundraising of HomeCare & Hospice Foundation. Each year Foundation Volunteers raise thousands of dollars for Hospice services through the Spring Bouquet Sale and Annual Hospice Walk and Run event. Foundation Volunteers also serve as volunteers for a variety of events such as the Tree of Life ceremonies and the Home & Garden Show and other events where HomeCare & Hospice is represented.
Hospice Patient and Respite Volunteers
A volunteer can be an important asset…as a listener – someone to talk with, reminisce and provide support to patients and their families. Support can include visiting, reading, taking walks or writing letters. Volunteers also provide a much needed opportunity for caregivers to have some personal time to run errands or simply take care of themselves. Family members no doubt also appreciate a visit from a compassionate friend who is supportive to them and their needs as a caregiver.
Provide support to grieving families through visits, phone calls and special bereavement events, such as children’s programs and Tree of Life ceremony.
Office volunteers assist in all HomeCare & Hospice locations with clerical projects, mailings and phone support.
Professional Skills Volunteers
Professional volunteers offer their skills and talents – such as hairdressers, notaries, attorneys, writers, masseuses, artists and pet therapists, RNs, LPNs, and CNAs. Professional licenses and certifications are required.
Special Event Volunteers
Special event volunteers spread the word about Hospice and assist with special events, such as our annual Tree of Life ceremony, the Spring Bouquet Sale, the Hospice Walk, and the October Fest.
Veterans Serving Veterans
As part of the We Honor Veterans initiative with the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO) and the Veterans Administration (VA), HomeCare & Hospice actively recruits veterans and their families to serve as hospice volunteers to visit patients who are also veterans. These veteran volunteers share a special and meaningful camaraderie with their hospice patients.
If you would like to volunteer with HomeCare & Hospice please fill out the form and we will get in touch with you as soon as possible.
Noreen said it best when she explained what her job is as a Hospice Volunteer. “My role is to be a trusted friend,” Noreen explained simply. “Before I leave each patient, I always tell them ‘You are not alone.’”
