Are you interested in making a difference in the lives of hospice patients? Become a hospice volunteer with Gentle Partners in Hospice!
As a volunteer, you could make a difference by visiting, reading, taking walks, writing letters, interpreting for those who do not speak English, bringing in music, and supervising therapeutic visits with pets.
Volunteers can assist with shopping or light household maintenance, or allow family caregivers the opportunity to take care of necessary errands, exercise, or simply have some time alone. Volunteers can also help care for a family pet.
Volunteers may also help with babysitting, picking up children from school or providing necessary transportation to club meetings or sporting events and practices.
Hospice volunteers can work closely with the hospice’s bereavement staff. Duties may include assisting a support group facilitator, serving refreshments, or helping with mailings to families.
A volunteer with clerical skills can serve Gentle Partners in Hospice by helping in the office with administrative duties. Fundraising responsibilities can range from preparing mailings or thank-you letters to organizing fundraising events and contacting potential donors.
