Make a difference as a hospice volunteer

February 9, 2023

Care Dimensions, the region’s largest provider of hospice care, will hold online training classes for those interested in becoming volunteers for the nonprofit organization.

You can make a difference in a patient’s life by:

• Engaging in a shared interest or hobby

• Helping with letter-writing or life review

• Visiting with your approved dog

• Reading to the patient

• Listening and by providing a supportive, comforting presence

Volunteers are resuming in-person visits with patients in their homes, in facilities and at our hospice houses. Volunteers are provided all necessary personal protective equipment. If patient visits are not the right fit, you can volunteer in other ways, such as providing administrative office support or making check-in phone calls to current patients or bereaved family members.

Training will be held via Zoom on Mondays and Wednesdays, 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., March 13 through April 5 (register by March 3). For more information or to register, go to, or email
