Volunteer Services and Support

Promise Hospice volunteers are essential to the hospice team, providing services that hospice otherwise could not offer. Volunteers give their time and compassion to patients and families dealing with end-of-life care needs, providing support in the home, a skilled nursing facility or a hospital.

Volunteers provide non-medical services such as:

  • Administrative and clerical duties, such as special-event planning and community outreach
  • Companionship for the patient
  • Emotional and spiritual support for patients and families
  • Family assistance for the caregivers
  • Light errands
  • Organization and participation in patient outings

Volunteer Training

All volunteers receive extensive hospice training to feel confident in their ability to help. For those providing patient care, Promise Hospice provides a 32-hour comprehensive training program. If an individual chooses non-patient-care volunteer support, they will also receive special training. However you choose to volunteer, the outcome is the same: patients’ lives will be fuller with your support.

Interested in volunteering? Promise Hospice has many volunteer opportunities available and is always looking for committed volunteers to join our team. Volunteering can be a truly rewarding experience that is deeply appreciated by our patients and families.

Respite Care

Caring for a loved one can be a difficult and emotionally wearing experience. Let the compassionate and caring staff at Promise Hospice assist in providing care for your loved one. Whether it’s a temporary stay to provide a break for you, the main caregiver, or an extended stay intended to keep your loved one comfortable during the end stages of life, we are available to assist, provide support, and care for both you and your loved one in a comfortable and private setting. Our private hospice/respite room is equipped with amenities for longer stays, such as a refrigerator, desk, and fold out bed, as well as a separate semi-private lounge area for family to gather.

Respite services are available for up to a five-day stay, while end of life Hospice services are provided per the patient’s care plan.
