Becoming a Hospice Volunteer
Hospice volunteers play a vital role in hospice care organizations. Many of our patients need companionship. With your time and talents, you will be able to help many people find peace in their lives. As a volunteer, you will be with hospice patients. Each hospice patient may have individual needs. The family may need a break to run some errands or go to appointments. Or you may need to just be with someone who is in need of a visit or two. This could be an ongoing opportunity or a few days. We are happy to work with your schedule. Olive Branch Hospice & Palliative Care knows how important volunteers are and appreciates your interest in volunteering with our company.
