Interested in Volunteering?
“Volunteers bring care, compassion, and companionship to those whom they are assigned. They bring themselves – their personalities, quirks, stories, experience, wit and wisdom…and mostly they bring the gift of time.”
What do Hospice volunteers do?
Alliance Hospice is committed to quality care and our volunteers are no exception. We have an exceptional group of loving and compassionate people who want to give the service of love to those who are experiencing a life limiting experience.
Tasks that a volunteer might perform include:
- Holding someone’s hand for comfort
- Reading a book out loud
- Picking up medications
- Running errands
- Bereavement support
- Daily care (such as bathing or brushing hair)
- Pet care
How to prepare:
Volunteers must be over 18 years old, complete a background screening process, and have their own transportation. Volunteers receive a thorough training to help prepare them for serving our Hospice patients and their family members. More information on this training will be given at the volunteer interview.
