If you ask anyone who has volunteered at Hospice Alliance, they are likely to share with you their story…their story of how they came to volunteer with us (oftentimes after a personal experience with a loved one in our care), their story of a an experience with a patient (often involving a simple pleasure such as Lemon Meringue Pie) or their story of the volunteer camaraderie and friendships they’ve made (such as the group of ladies known as “The Coffee Mates”).
Hospice Alliance has a wide variety of volunteer opportunities. Some include making meals and sitting with patients in our Hospice House, companionship visits with patients in nursing facilities, sitting with a patient in their home so a family member can leave for an errand, or assisting with projects in our business office. We also have a group of vigil volunteers who sit with patients at end-of-life, fulfilling our mission that no one dies alone.
When chatting with our Volunteer Manager for more information about volunteer training, it is likely you’ll hear, “Whatever you like to do, we have a place for you!”
