Training and Support
Enriching every life we encounter is one of the cornerstones of our mission – a mission that could not be accomplished without the dedicated and heartfelt work of our volunteers. Whether you can give four hours a month, or four hours a day, we can use your help!
All our volunteers receive extensive training in providing comfort and support to families facing end-of-life issues. Topics covered during volunteer training include the basics of hospice care, active listening, identifying and respecting cultural differences, spirituality, grief, and the healing process.
Volunteers are an invaluable part of our interdisciplinary team; they demonstrate a deep commitment to the hospice philosophy.
Ways to Serve
There are a variety of opportunities to volunteer with Aegis and our patients, from supportive visits, transportation, care calls, and bereavement support, there is always a need for volunteers.
