Visiting Nurse invites you to be a Hospice Volunteer!
Visiting Nurse is proud of its well-established volunteer program and is proud to offer the skills and services of 125 trained and dedicated volunteers to serve the many needs of families and patients that are nearing the end of life. Volunteers help patients in their homes and nursing homes and may spend time reading to patients, running errands or giving time off to the patient’s caregiver. Volunteer support is also needed in the 14-bed in-patient Hospice Home. Duties include patient support activities and clerical support. Visiting Nurse has a special need for evening and weekend volunteers, and garden volunteers are needed to help maintain the Seasons of Life garden adjacent to Hospice Home.
Volunteers stay with patients at the time of imminent death.

Volunteer Training & Education
After an interview, a comprehensive volunteer training prepares incoming volunteer for this fulfilling work. Volunteer training is generally offered 2-3 times a year. Our volunteer program is well established and provides ongoing guidance and support through a full-time Volunteer Coordinator.

Hospice Home Volunteers Needed
Summer Training Dates Coming Soon...
Many people are motivated to volunteer because of a positive experience with hospice. For your care and protection, we ask that inquiring volunteers wait at least a year if they have recently lost a loved one.
In addition to the volunteer application, we also require a completed criminal history request form.
