Volunteer Opportunities For All at Hospice

hopsiceThirty five years ago, Hospice of the Bluegrass began with a group of volunteers, and volunteers remain at the heart of Hospice.

Hospice volunteers are specially trained (free of charge) to have the information they need to feel well prepared.

Could you share some time to assist Hospice patients and their families?

Opportunities include:

  • Companionship: Assist patients and families.
  • Respite Care: Stay with a patient to provide caregivers a break.
  • Transportation: Provide rides for patients and families.
  • Care Calls: Phone patients to ensure they have needed supplies, medications and medical equipment.
  • 11th Hour: Stay with actively dying patients who have no family so that no one will die alone.
  • Professional: Provide skills such as beautician, musician, attorney, massage therapist, pet therapy, etc.
  • Bereavement: Offer care to family members grieving the loss of a loved one.
  • Administrative Support: Clerical services, etc.
  • Special Events: Assist with fundraising and events.
