Volunteer Information

Categorical Listing: Elderly, Health

Mission: Our mission is to facilitate access to dignified, end-of-life care and quality services that allow our patients and families the hospice option to live life richly, deeply and meaningfully for as long as it lasts.

Volunteer Opportunities:

Direct Patient Volunteer without pet: Volunteers offer companionship. Like a friendly neighbor, they can assist with simple tasks like writing letters, reading to the patient, massage therapy, playing cards or other activities.

Direct Patient Volunteer with pet: These folks visit patients with their certified therapy pets to offer companionship and a touch of home for patients who love pets. The visits of the volunteer & dog partners enrich patient's lives, and spark reminisces about dogs the patient has had in their lifetime. We can help in your pet obtaining this certification.

Office Volunteer: Assists in the Harbor Light Hospice office answering phones, filing, and doing general office duties. Hours are flexible.

Vigil Volunteer: These specially trained volunteers focus on patients and their families at the critical time when the patient is at the end of life. They offer support and comfort.

Respite Volunteers: Volunteers are asked to provide one to four hours companionship to the patient who is ill. This gives the caregiver a much needed respite to: take a nap, go for a walk, grocery shop, meet friends, go to a doctor's appointment or run errands.

Craft Volunteers: People who enjoy doing crafts can make scrapbooks or shadow boxes for patient's rooms. Patients love to reminisce and relive the happy moments in their lives. They can also make promotional materials or fun gifts for patients.

Activity/Event Volunteers: Plan and execute activities or events for our patients. This can be a one time activity that can be done with a group. An example of an activity is sharing your talent for the playing of a musical instrument to provide comfort and entertainment to our patients.

One time group volunteers have to be at least 18 years old, fill out an information sheet, confidentiality agreement and photo release form.
