How Capstone Hospice Volunteers Serve
Volunteers provide important services and support to hospice organizations and the people they serve. Whether it be providing companionship to a person at the end-of-life, offering support to caregivers and family members, or working in the capacity of fundraising, community outreach, or office organization, we rely on our volunteer community.
There is always something to do in the office. Filing, phone calls, copying, assembling packets, stocking supplies, preparing mailings – we can use your set of hands.
Making phone calls to patients and families just to check in and make sure all needs are met – what a simple way to reach out on a regular basis. Finding out what a family might need at any given time is a huge help to our hospice team!
Families benefit from ongoing support. Volunteers can help our psychosocial team with phone calls, mailings, assisting with groups, and more.
We work to honor veterans by meeting veteran-specific needs. We love to pair up a volunteer who is a veteran with other veterans and their families.
Visiting patients and families in their homes and in a variety of facilities offers such tremendous comfort. Simple companionship, reading, respire care, and more are true gifts. Running errands, small chores, yardwork – the possibilities are endless.
Teenagers are such a wonderful part of our team! Teens bring energy and enthusiasm as well as new ideas to the table. Capstone Hospice offers specialized training to teen groups and will customize the volunteer experience to best utilize each teen’s strengths and meet their learning goals.
Helping out with events such as recognition and appreciation, both in the office and out “in the field” at our many facilities. Volunteers help with the presentation of Dream Foundation awards and many other events.
Many professionals and retirees would like to volunteer while using their special skills and training. Nurses, physical therapists, social workers, massage therapists, music practitioners, cosmetologists – whatever your background and specialty, we have ways for you to bring your experience to our team.
