Become a Hospice Volunteer

As a hospice volunteer you will:

  • provide caregiver respite
  • serve as a companion
  • enhance the quality of end of life care and
  • assist with Agency events, fundraising activities, and administrative tasks

Most course sessions will be held at the Agency’s St. Albans office on Thursdays, 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. There will be an off-site session at a funeral home.

“I’d recommend the course to anyone, even if you decide not to become a hospice volunteer. It’s very informative and gets you to think. It’s dynamic.” — Hospice Volunteer
