Hospice Volunteer Program

Volunteering in Hospice

Parker Jewish Institute’s Comprehensive Community Hospice has been providing highly specialized care to terminally ill patients since 1997 and welcomes volunteers of all ages and backgrounds.

Hospice volunteers are a special group of people that use their time and talents to enrich the quality of life for our patients and their families as the end of life approaches. Hospice volunteers enhance the quality of life and help reduce the burden for family caregivers by providing support, assistance, in patient’s homes, in nursing homes, and assisted living facilities.

Hospice volunteers can commit to as little or as much time as they wish. Some volunteers provide several hours of service each week while others commit to a few hours each month. Serving as valued members of the hospice team, for just a few hours of your time you can make a significant impact on the lives of patients and their loved ones.

There are many opportunities to share your time and talents as a volunteer and support patients, their loved ones dealing with end of life.
