Description

At Hospice, you and I get the privilege to be with patients at an extremely intimate time in their lives. I always feel honored to be a part of their process. And at Wentworth Hospice, you will work with the most compassionate staff, Home Health Aides, Chaplains, Social Workers, RNs and MDs. Working here, my own compassion is elevated to a higher expectation and make me a better person.

Volunteers can make a difference in a variety of ways, including:

  • Provide Veteran to Veteran visits--so many Hospice Veterans wish for a Veteran Volunteer!
  • Offering Companionship and the gift of listening                     
  • Arts,Crafts, Sewing...many patients hunger for a buddy to help them with their arts/crafts/sewing  
  • Providing respite for the family--so they can grocery shop, run errands or just take a nap
  • Reiki/Massage
  • Hairdresser
  • Music...can you sing/play an instrument?  Or....use a Kindle, IPhone to play music for the patient?
  • Running errands
  • Providing administrative support in our office...phone calls, bereavement mailings, etc.
  • Making lunch, taking a wheelchair walk, pet therapy visits


You decide how many hours you want to give and what time of day works for you.  I will match you with the right patient! Volunteer in facilities or in the patient's home.  Again, your choice!


 People helping people.  That's what giving to Hospice care is all about.  If you have a passion for caring for others, and if you're looking for a way to make a difference in people's lives, call me!
