Only a few hours a week can make all the difference! Provide emotional and social support to adults facing life-threatening illnesses. Talk about gardening, art, sailing, travel, cars, fashion, war planes, sitting quietly... almost any topic of interest that you would like to share with another person. Visits usually take place once a week for about 1-2 hours in the client’s home. Depending on the client’s ability, volunteers may also take the client out for a walk or a drive. These visits may also provide a break for the primary caregiver. This service is offered free of charge, through the generosity of Acclaim Health’s funders, donors, and supporters.

Volunteer Training: Hospice Visiting is one of our most rewarding and meaningful volunteer experiences. During your training, amazing and friendly program experts will teach you the skills and knowledge you need to be comfortable and effective in the role.
