Hospice Volunteer

A hospice-trained volunteer provides companionship and support services to terminally ill patients and their families. A hospice volunteer should possess an attitude of unconditional acceptance, comfort and dignity and a willingness to be of service to others.

There are many ways a hospice volunteer can be of assistance. While many of our volunteers enjoy working directly with our patients and families, there are many other things that a hospice volunteer can do. Some of things that our volunteers do include: Office/computer skills, handy-man type projects, scrapbooking and much more. Ask us how we can use your skills!

Volunteers are an integral part of the hospice concept of care. Each volunteer wanting to work with patients is chosen specifically according to each family's needs, and is there to be a friend and a helper.

Hospice of San Angelo offers intermittent live training courses as well as on-line and individualized training for those who would like to start training right away or who cannot fit traditional training in their schedule.

You may download and print the Hospice of San Angelo volunteer application and send it in by fax, phone or e-mail.
