CHI Franciscan Hospice and Palliative Care needs volunteers to assist us in providing comfort and compassion to those nearing the end of life throughout Pierce County.
Comforting activities can include:
- Providing respite
- Hospice House support
- Running errands
- Making phone calls
- Sewing projects
- Recording life stories
- Visiting someone who is isolated
Interested volunteers need to be at least 16 years of age and be available 1 to 4 hours a week. We support volunteers by providing comprehensive on line and 1-day classroom training as well as one-to-one mentoring and ongoing education. The next 1-day training takes place Saturday, Sept. 28.
