Volunteer Services

Hospice volunteers choose the volunteer role they are most comfortable with, from spending time with patients and their families by reading, praying, or playing cards with them to serving at the front desk.

Some volunteers prefer to assist with clerical duties, community presentations, public speaking, gardening, holiday decorating, grocery shopping, errands, baking cookies and more. The volunteer opportunities are endless.

During training, volunteers learn about hospice, the OSF team, death and dying, signs and symptoms of diagnosis, how to talk with the patients and their loved ones, religious and cultural diversity, and grief issues.
