Hospice Volunteers – By Your Side

Hospice is about quality of life. Your compassionate and loving presence is all that is required to make a tremendous difference in someone’s life.
Thank you for your interest in volunteering with us.  Signature Hospice is growing rapidly due to our passionate commitment to providing the best hospice care possible.  As a hospice volunteer, you would be part of a wonderful team of caring people who believe every little thing we do, can and will make a difference in the lives of our patients and their families.  Volunteers are at the heart of this, and our goal is to create a positive experience for you, the patient and the families we work with.

We provide the support necessary for you to be successful as a Signature Hospice two hands overlappedVolunteer.  It may be that you walk with someone in a garden, at their home, or care facility. It may be that you hear stories of a lifetime, of relationships and adventure, or listen to current worries and concerns. Our volunteer opportunities include direct patient/family companionship and support–writing letters, reading books aloud, playing board and card games, playing a musical instrument, sharing a good conversation,  grocery shopping, sitting quietly together, watching a movie together, and more.

Signature Hospice offers a personal letter of reference for those volunteers who have  worked with patients for 90 days and could use this service towards employment or school applications.
Signature Hospice invites you to join our volunteer team to support patients and families in your community. Our volunteer training will prepare you to provide the companionship and support so many patients and families need when faced with a terminal illness.
