After an experience with hospice, families will often ask us if there is some way they can contribute to the needs of terminally ill patients and their families. One of our most invaluable resources is our volunteer program. Many of our volunteers were previously involved with hospice as family members.

How does a volunteer support hospice?

  • Providing respite to family
  • Socialization: reading, playing cards, sewing, simply being a friendly visitor to a patient
  • Office and administrative support
  • Offering their unique talents in any way toward supporting patients, families, and the community at-large

Pathways to Compassion hospice’s volunteer programs are supervised by a dedicated Volunteer Coordinator, who will provide orientation to hospice, Pathways to Compassion, and some of the healthcare regulations that are important to be aware of.
