Passionate Hospice Volunteers Needed

When you become a Seton hospice volunteer, you’re not joining just any group; you’re becoming a part of a family – the Seton family. Our volunteers offer a helping hand and a kind word during what can be a time of stress and uncertainty for our patients and families. Did you know that the word “companion” is not only a noun, but also a verb? “Companion” means “to accompany”. To be a companion volunteer is not only to be a friend and companion, but it also means to accompany someone on a journey. In the case of being a hospice volunteer, you are one who accompanies another on their journey at the end of life. If this sounds like something you can do or are interested in more information on becoming a hospice volunteer, please contact us.
