  • Providing caregiver relief, which could include running errands, such as picking up groceries or walking a dog, or helping with other tasks, as appropriate
  • Specialty volunteer roles include sewing keepsake bears, haircutting from licensed cosmetologists, pet therapy with certified therapy dogs, and energy therapy by qualified Reiki practitioners

Volunteer requirements

  • Must be 18 or older
  • Be able to dedicate four hours a week to hospice care
  • Commit to at least one year of service¬†¬†
