As a hospice volunteer you will be given choices as to how much and what types of things you want to do. Some examples of typical volunteer duties are:

  • Listening to a patient’s concerns

  • Being a comforting and supportive presence

  • Engaging in the patient’s hobbies, for example, playing a board game or discussing current events

  • Reading or writing down memories for the patient or helping with correspondence

  • Telling other hospice staff the needs of the hospice patient and family/inner circle

  • Running errands or doing light housekeeping for those receiving hospice care at home

  • Encouraging the patient to tell their life story

  • Transporting a patient to physician visits or shopping

  • Providing assistance with personal care such as bathing or transferring from a chair to bed, if the volunteer has been properly trained to do so
