Hospice volunteers are ordinary people of all ages with extraordinary talents who share a common bond--concern for others. They contribute to the overall well-being of our community one person and one family at a time. Volunteers help in many ways and are limited only by their imagination. Below is a listing of the many compelling opportunities available to volunteers throughout the seven neighborhoods we serve, as well as at our two inpatient units-Halquist Memorial in Arlington-and the Adler Center for Caring, opening late fall 2013.
No previous experience is required and orientation/training is provided. Flexible scheduling available.
