Volunteer for Tabitha Hospice

Our hospice volunteers are rooted in the communities in which they serve—providing assistance through listening, companionship, respite care and help with everyday tasks.

Tabitha Hospice Volunteers provide support to Clients in the last stages of life and their families. Hospice Volunteers visit Clients in Tabitha Living Communities, other care facilities or Clients’ homes.

Hospice Volunteers are an integral part of Tabitha’s Hospice team, providing emotional, physical and spiritual support. These trained, Caring  Volunteers provide assistance through companionship, listening, respite care and helping with everyday tasks. Many of our volunteers have become longtime friends of the families they serve.

After your hospice Volunteer application is approved, Tabitha will provide specialized training to prepare you for this unique and rewarding opportunity.

  • Respite care

  • Companionship
  • Pet visits/window pet visits (e.g. dogs, calves, donkey, bunny)
  • Window painting
  • Light housekeeping
  • Errand running
