Concordia Hospice of Washington Volunteer

Do you have the desire and passion to impact someone’s life? Whether you’re doing something as simple as cooking a meal or as complex as writing someone’s life story, Concordia Hospice of Washington volunteers make a difference.

Volunteers are always welcome and needed. All volunteers must complete a volunteer application form, per the Hospice Medicare Regulations, and receive training from the Concordia Hospice of Washington staff – the amount of training depends upon the area of volunteer interest. Volunteers choose the amount of time they wish to volunteer as well as the geographical areas in which they wish to serve.

College students bring wonderful gifts to patients and families due to their flexibility, education and desire to serve and diversify their skills. Spending time with patients and families strengthens communication skills and adds value in immeasurable ways. Students in nursing, social science, counseling, therapy, EMT, Paramedic, and medical technology programs have found hospice volunteering extremely rewarding both personally and academically.

Because hospice patients have diverse needs, Concordia Hospice of Washington welcomes individuals and groups (church, school, community) with varied skills. Our volunteers have been gardeners, hairstylists, artists, musicians, carpenters, quilters, housekeepers, and writers. Every special skill and talent can be used when you are a hospice volunteer.

Volunteer opportunities include:

  • Provide companionship and support to patients
