Hope Hospice is currently looking for individuals who are interested in volunteering to assist hospice patients and their families. In keeping with Hope Hospice’s goal to make sure patients can live their lives to the fullest and with dignity, our volunteers provide a variety of services that help enhance the quality of care of our patients’ lives.
Volunteer opportunities include:
For volunteers who are interested in providing companionship to dementia patients we offer training so that they have tools to help them connect with the patients. Training sessions cover dementia-specific topics such as communication and feelings, music and memory, how art can be therapeutic, activities of living and optimal well-being, family dynamics and caregiver burnout.
