Allied Services Hospice volunteers are a diverse group of dedicated individuals committed to providing a variety of services to both patients and their families.
With compassion and respect, Hospice volunteers play a vital role within the Hospice team – visiting patients and/or their families, supporting their caregivers or assisting in the Hospice office.
Patient Care Volunteers
Patient Care Volunteers provide companionship to patients & respite for their caregivers. They offer a warm presence, a listening ear, an open mind and a loving heart to those in our care.
Vigil Volunteers are available upon request to provide a supportive presence to patients and their families during a patient’s final journey.
Administrative Volunteers provide office and clerical support to the Hospice team members.
Bereavement Support Volunteers

You can commit as much or as little of your time as you desire as an Allied Services Hospice volunteer.
