Volunteer with Optage Hospice

Become an integral part of our hospice team.

As a hospice volunteer, you have the opportunity to fill roles from direct customer contact to clerical duties. Many describe hospice volunteering as gratifying, inspiring, honoring, memorable and emotionally meaningful.

Volunteers consist of retirees, medical students, family members of a loved one who benefited from Optage Hospice, stay-at-home parents, employees who get paid time off to volunteer and individuals from other walks of life.

How to become a volunteer:

  • Interview with a volunteer coordinator.
  • Complete 4.5 hours of online training.
  • Pass a criminal background check including fingerprinting.
  • Complete a TB test (paid for by Optage Hospice).
  • Attend a 30-minute orientation and introduction to your first patient.
