Volunteer Services 

Give the Unique Gift of Yourself


   Hospice volunteers are ordinary people doing something extraordinary. They are men and women of all ages, interested and abilities who share a common belief in the principles of hospice and a desire to help patients and their families deal with life's greatest challenge.  An integral part of the hospice program, volunteers bring the unique gift of themselves to support the patient and family. 

   Through their simple acts of personal caring and concern, hospice volunteers help provide comfort and support to enrich the end-of-life journey. 

  • Patient Care Volunteers are responsible for providing non-medical support services as needed to patients and families. 
  • Bereavement Volunteers may help make calls of support to the family after the death of their loved-one or assist in other hospice bereavement programs. 
  • Administrative Volunteers perform a wide variety of tasks within the Inpatient and Residential Center or the administrative office area. 
  • Pet Therapy Volunteers offer their unique service with their well-trained and certified pet therapy animals. 
  • Translator Volunteers offer the important service of communicating to non-English speaking hospice patients and families. 

   You must be at least 18 years of age and willing to make a commitment to our hospice program. Volunteers must complete an application, attend a personal interview, give permission for a background check, other screenings, and participate in a 15-hour training course provided by Ogeechee Area Hospice. 

   Come join us in a fulfilling and rewarding program for people in your community.
