  • Handle light housekeeping home repairs/lawn care
  • Make memory books
  • Complete office work 

Requirements:

  •  At least 1-4 hours a week
  • Complete Hospice volunteer training program (mostly online and takes about 12 hrs. to complete)
  • Willing to undergo a background check (we pay for), and a TB test

Why volunteer with us?

We have a team approach that is focused on "our" success in achieving a great work environment and excellent patient outcomes. We believe in caring for both our team and our patients and have a profound understanding of the value in both. We are committed to being the provider of choice in the areas we serve. Come meet us, join the team, and help us continue to build something great. . . We're excited to meet you!
