Hospice Volunteers Needed in Greenville, SC & the Upstate

A Hospice Volunteer in Greenville comforts an Interim Hospice patient.

Being a hospice volunteer is an intensely rewarding experience. 

Whether it’s providing companionship to a person in the final months or weeks of life, offering support to family members and caregivers, providing assistance in the office or helping with community outreach, the contributions of volunteers are an essential part of Interim HealthCare of Greenville & the Upstate's Hospice Program.

Our goal is to provide excellent end-of-life support to each patient and family. Hospice volunteers are at the heart of our goal. Serving people at the end of life’s journey allows hospice volunteers in Greenville and throughout the Upstate to make a difference to someone in need every day.

Once you complete the required pre-training interview and orientation class, you'll be ready. Surviving family members or friends wishing to join the volunteer staff will be strongly encouraged to wait a minimum of one year following the death of their loved one. Time requirements... 8 hours for training and then whatever number of hours you are available
