Opportunity Details

Hospice Volunteer

Who are Hospice Volunteers?
Hospice volunteers play an important role on the Essentia Health Hospice Care Team by supporting patients and their loved ones through the final part of life's journey. A hospice volunteer may provide companionship and caregiver respite at a patient's house, a facility, or wherever the patient calls home. Volunteers may also provide team support in an office setting or with special projects.

Hospice Volunteer Opportunities
Hospice volunteers have a direct impact on the lives of people in our community. There are many ways to show care and compassion for patients and their loved ones, such as:

  • Companionship

  • Going for a walk
  • Reading, playing cards, or other activities
  • Grocery shopping, errands, or cooking
  • Sharing skills such as music or knitting
