Become a Volunteer!

Thank you for considering making a commitment to help those in need in your community.  Please take a moment to reflect on the following questions and be honest with yourself about whether or not this is a good match for your skill set.

  • Are you comfortable with death and dying?
  • Are you able to listen without making suggestions or needing to control the conversation?
  • Are you flexible?
  • Do you have a sense of humor?
  • Are you open to training, supervision and committed to the organization and its mission?

If after reflection, you feel that volunteering for Hospicare is a good fit, please follow the steps listed:

Step one: Application

Complete and return a volunteer application form

Step two: Interview

The Manager of Volunteer Services will contact you for a personal interview.  During the interview, we’ll learn more about your skills and interests and share with you our needs, to see if we can find a position that will be fulfilling for you and beneficial to the patients and families we serve.

Step three: Orientation & Training

Volunteer training is provided for all volunteers.  A 20-hour core training course is mandatory for most volunteer positions and is offered twice a year.  Additional paperwork and health requirements will be reviewed during the training.
