About Us » Be a Volunteer
Become A Sanctuary Hospice Volunteer today!
Hospice volunteers have rewarding jobs, which may include patient assistance, visits, helping at the hospice house, and the list goes on. Each person brings a unique mix of talents to the hospice experience and each volunteer is needed and appreciated by everyone at Sanctuary!
Becoming a hospice volunteer can give you one of the most life-affirming gifts you may ever receive – the knowledge that you made a difference when someone needed it!
Examples of Volunteer Opportunities:
Respite Care - Respite volunteers provide relief to the caregiver, if only for a short while, allowing them to tend to their own needs. The volunteer receives the gift of being a friend and companion to the patient. Quietly sitting and holding a hand, reading about current events or simply listening are some of the things a respite volunteer offers.
Office: Answering phones, data entry, filing or assisting with passing messages through to our team in the field are just a few of the jobs of an office volunteer. They are essential to timely and efficient processing of patient care and the overall smooth operation of the office.
Special Projects: Sending birthday or sympathy cards, creating gifts for the patient or the bereaved, assisting with fundraisers like the thrift store or Celebration Village, assisting with senior home activities are some of the many special projects volunteers may assist with.
Utilize Your Talent: Musical performances, massage therapy, art therapy, hair cuts/styling and pet therapy are a few of the ways you can help. The list is only limited by your imagination and talent!
