Volunteers are the heart of hospice. They are caring, dedicated individuals from all walks of life who are integral to the Hospice team and vital to our mission of providing compassionate care.
Most volunteers interact directly with patients and families. Others prefer to work behind the scenes in the office, or assist with public speaking, fundraising or special projects.
Hospice volunteer opportunities are as individual as you are. You may volunteer in your own community; positions are available in Skagit, Island, San Juan and Snohomish counties. Volunteer activities include: patient/family volunteering, vigil volunteering, pet therapy, phone support, office volunteering, speaker’s bureaus, fundraising and events.
Volunteers find their service to Hospice to be deeply fulfilling. No matter what draws volunteers to Hospice work, they all say it gives them a greater appreciation for life and a perspective on what is important.
