Share your unique gifts and talents...become a Valley Hospice volunteer Each and every one of us has a special talent or gift to share with someone who is in need. Whatever your talent or gift, Valley Hospice needs volunteers.
The U.S. hospice movement was founded by volunteers. Valley Hospice depends on our volunteers and appreciates the commitment they have made to our patients, families and our community. Their caring hands are appreciated in our patients’ homes, our offices, and our care centers. Without the efforts of our volunteers Valley Hospice could not continue its important work.
Volunteers are valuable members of the Valley Hospice team. Wherever you choose to volunteer at Valley Hospice, there’s a place for you... Whether you want to work directly with patients and families or in another role, you can make a big difference in someone’s life, including your own.

Veteran Volunteer Opportunities
Veteran to veteran companionship
Valley Hospice provides volunteers with an overview of hospice care; including spirituality, grief and loss, listening and communicating and family interactions, to name a few. Training is provided in both one-on-one and group settings, based on the needs of the volunteer.
We encourage those who have lost a loved one to wait at least one year before volunteering.
