Regional Hospice volunteers perform many tasks for hospice patients and their families.
One of the most important things a volunteer can offer our patients is time: time to sit with
them, listen to their stories and share their lives. Time to read to them, prepare a meal, run
small errands, and help with light personal care. Time to offer caregivers a break from the challenging task of caring for a loved one who is dying. If you have care to spare, please consider becoming a Regional Hospice volunteer.
Regional Hospice provides all volunteers with a training program that may be completed
either in person or at home. Each site offers a volunteer training class at least once a year. Training provides information about the Regional Hospice approach to care as well as skill building and tips from experienced volunteers. If the class time is inconvenient, we have a
self-paced learn at home program. Volunteers are assigned to work with patients in their
own geographic area. Each site has a Volunteer Coordinator who is available for support, encouragement, and guidance.
Other Volunteer Opportunities
Visiting with hospice patients is not for everyone. If you are interested in volunteering in
another capacity (e.g. fundraising, clerical, or professional services), please contact us.
