Patient & Family Volunteers

Visit our adult and pediatric patients where they receive care. You may choose to spend quality time reading with them, taking walks, writing letters, or simply enjoying conversations with them. Volunteers give family caregivers the time to run personal errands or take some quality respite time away from their day-to-day duties. Patient visits usually last two hours or less and are requested weekly. We provide specialized training.

Pet Peace of Mind

Our pet program ensures that the pets of our Community Hospice & Palliative Care patients have their needs met with the same loving care their families provide. Our volunteers walk dogs, provide waste clean-up, feed pets, and provide transportation to veterinary visits or groomers. This is a flexible opportunity. We provide specialized training.

These volunteers represent Community Hospice & Palliative Care at various veterans-related events.
