What is a Hospice Volunteer?
Compassionate, skilled volunteers are the heart and soul of AlēvCare Hospice. Hospice volunteers are committed to the hospice philosophy of care and service. They have a respect and reverence for life and consider it a privilege to serve the seriously and terminally ill patients and their families.
AlēvCare is looking for volunteers of all ages, from diverse social and professional backgrounds. A volunteer can be as young as 16, but must be at least 18 to work directly with our patients. AlēvCare volunteers are valued members of our hospice team and may choose when and how they wish to volunteer.
Research has shown that hospice volunteers report an increased level of personal and emotional satisfaction when helping families.
