Volunteer Opportunities:

  • Patient and caregiver visitation and respite care – Provide companionship and support to patients and families in their homes. Volunteers may also visit a patient exclusively, giving family members a respite from providing care, thereby permitting them some much-needed free time. Volunteers may also perform some tasks such as yard work or light housework.

  • Pet Therapy – Owners of certified “therapy dogs” visit with patients in their homes or facilities to provide companionship.

  • Music and art therapy – In conjunction with our licensed therapists, volunteers work with patients and families to provide outlets for alternative visual and musical expressions of their thoughts, feelings and emotions.

  • Special projects – May include making special treats or items for the patients and families at the holidays, for patients’ birthdays, or other special occasions. A special project may also constitute fulfilling a “special wish” for a patient and his/her family.

  • Community outreach – Participation in education and social events to increase awareness of the services offered by Island Hospice and to recruit new volunteers.

  • Fundraising – Assistance with planning and presenting a variety of fundraising activities in the communities we serve.

  • Office and phone support and computer work – Assistance with mailings, clerical duties and coordination of volunteer services, community events, and bereavement seminars.

  • Skill and talent contributions – We appreciate volunteers who are interested in sharing their skills/talents such as cooking/baking, music, crafts, landscaping, building wheelchair ramps, sewing, hairdressing, etc.

  • Donate items on our Wish List
