Notre Dame Hospice Care provides comfort, compassion, companionship, and support to patients nearing end of life and their families, when a treatment or cure for an underlying disease is no longer available. Services are delivered by an interdisciplinary team of healthcare professionals who focus on addressing physical, psychological, social, and spiritual needs to improve quality of life.
Become an Adult or Pediatric Hospice Care Volunteer.
Hospice care volunteers offer their time and talents to provide patients and their families with compassionate care and support as they face their serious illness, life-limiting illness, or end of life. Volunteers can also assist the organization with daily operations in the office setting. There are a multitude of ways that your talents can help support our programs.
Volunteers can support our program in the following ways:
ADULT HOSPICE CARE
Under the guidance and supervision of the Hospice Interdisciplinary Team, many volunteers opt to work directly with our clients in 1:1 or group settings. Opportunities are available for those seeking a different experience as well, including office assistance and more.
PEDIATRIC HOSPICE CARE
Our Pediatric Hospice Care Program is looking for kind, compassionate individuals who love to work with children.
The Notre Dame Hospice volunteer training program offers on going education, supervision, and support to ensure the success of everyone involved. Because our volunteers often have so many other commitments, the orientation process is as streamlined as possible. Orientation can be completed as a self-study, online, or within a structured group setting.
