Volunteer Services

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 Manhattan’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 Manhattan to make a difference to someone in need every day.

 

Are you ready to help those in need find peace?
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.

As a volunteer, you will have access to ongoing educational opportunities to ensure you feel comfortable with your role. Hospice education covers

  • Philosophy of hospice care
  • Services offered by hospice
  • Effective communication with patients and family members
  • Physical, emotional, social and spiritual issues encountered at the end of life
  • Comfort for patients and families
