To Learn More

Our Volunteers are the Heart of our Home

      These individuals have come into our lives from different places, for different reasons. Together, we have grown into a supportive family who care for our residents, their families, and all those who enter our home.

      The Hospeace House staff and volunteers work as an extension of family to care for your loved one. Our volunteers have completed comprehensive training and additional instruction for providing compassionate, palliative care for our residents.

      We welcome you to consider this meaningful role at such a profound time in a person’s life. If you have a caring and compassionate heart, you have already met the basic requirements, as NO medical experience is necessary. We will teach you what you need to know to care for our residents. 

      If you would like to volunteer, you may print our application, fill it out and mail (or email) it back to us. You may also contact us by phone or email to request an application.
