Serving as a hospice volunteer can challenge your spirit, fill your heart, and enrich your own life. You are guaranteed to meet extraordinary people who will share this incredible journey with you. If you have one to four hours per week to share yourself with another, consider volunteering with Sacred Heart Hospice.
Volunteers may provide direct patient and family assistance. These services include, but are not limited to:
- Sitting with patients
- Making phone calls
- Running errands for patients and/or caregivers
- Pickup and delivery - Volunteers who enjoy driving can pick up and deliver prescriptions and supplies and run errands for patients and caregivers
- Handy man/woman - Volunteers are sometimes needed to build a wheelchair ramp, tend a garden or repair a handrail for a patient
Volunteers Are the Heart of Hospice
Hospice volunteers are men and women (age 14 and older) who have a sincere desire to help others make the most of life. Volunteers are prepared for their role with a free, comprehensive training program. No previous experience in the medical field is necessary. Through training, hospice volunteers learn how to provide emotional support, companionship and respite care to our patients and families.
If you are able to share your time with Sacred Heart Hospice, there is a variety of opportunities to choose from based on your area(s) of interest and schedule.
We encourage people interested in volunteering with Hospice to discuss their interests and talents with our staff so that we can make your volunteer experience as rewarding for you as it is for Sacred Heart Hospice.
