Hospice Volunteer Services
At Hospice of the South Shore, we have great appreciation and respect for people who give of themselves by serving as hospice volunteers. These generous, kindhearted individuals are key members of our hospice team, and they are indispensable to our patients and their families.
Many of our volunteers have personally benefited from hospice care during a loved one’s serious illness, and they want to help families facing the same difficult time. Others are compassionate individuals who simply want to give of themselves in a very special way.
Our hospice volunteers often work directly with patients and families, providing compassion, companionship, and emotional support. In many cases, the hospice volunteer becomes a true and trusted friend to a patient and family.
Volunteers donate their time and efforts in a wide variety of ways, such as reading to, talking with, or writing a letter for a patient. They may prepare a meal, provide transportation, run an errand, or give a family member a little time off from the role of primary caregiver.
At Hospice of the South Shore, all volunteers are carefully screened, trained, and supervised. For more information about volunteering with us, call 781-624-7255.
