Do you want to make a difference in someone’s life?
Volunteering doesn’t take advanced medical training or a great commitment. It can be as simple as reading to a patient, or spending some quiet time with someone for a few hours a week. It’s these small acts of kindness that can so profoundly impact the lives of our patients and those who love them.
There are many kinds of volunteers – individuals, families, businesses, youth and school groups, civic organizations and churches. This important role can offer hope and added support for those we help. Our volunteers go through interview and screening processes to ensure the safety of our patients and their families.
You may not know this, but the hospice concept actually began as a volunteer program by Dame Cicely Saunders in the early 1950s and is now one of the most cherished and rewarding volunteer opportunities in the country.
