A Rewarding Way to Spend Your Time

Assisted Hospice is always looking for committed and caring people to add to our team of volunteers.

Assisted Hospice Volunteer Program are members of a dedicated team who strive to provide extra love and comfort to terminally ill patients and their families. Assisted Volunteer Program is committed to the dignity of patients and their families.

With Only 60 Minutes
