Hospice Volunteers

Parkview Hospice offers opportunities for individuals to serve as volunteers in communities throughout northeast Indiana.

Volunteers play a vital role for persons who are nearing the end of life or their family members. Specific activities may include:

  • Visiting with patients throughout the week for companionship or offering caregivers a chance to take time for themselves.
  • Administrative office duties.
  • Veterans to provide companionship to those who have served in the military and to participate in ceremonies of appreciation.
  • Comforting patients nearing the end of their lives, as well as their family members through vigil visits.
  • Bereavement support during the 13-month period following the death of a hospice patient through mailings, support groups, phone calls and help with memorial services.
  • Making “tuck-in” phone calls to patients and their families to assure needs and supplies are fulfilled before the weekend.
  • Certified therapy dogs for pet visits.
  • Writing letters to patients or sending encouraging mail.

Training is required. For more information about volunteer opportunities, contact us below.
