Application Process

This volunteering opportunity requires that the applicant complete a volunteer application and background check.

Volunteers must meet the following qualifications:

Confidentiality: Hospice volunteers should observe patients’ confidentiality by not discussing patients outside of direct contact with the hospice team. All volunteers must sign a statement of confidentiality.

Good health: Hospice volunteer coordinators will make appropriate volunteer assignments according to the volunteer’s physical capabilities and risk level.
Transportation: Hospice volunteers must be able to arrange transportation to and from their assignments.

Training: All hospice volunteers who wish to have direct patient contact must complete the St. Joseph Hospice Volunteer Training program.

Schedule: Hospice volunteers’ time will be assigned according to individual schedules; however, it’s expected that volunteers be able to accept the majority of requests for service and be available on short notice should the need arise.

Dress: Hospice volunteers don’t have to wear a uniform but must wear identification name tags at all times and dress appropriately.

Alcohol/drugs: Hospice volunteers are prohibited from visiting patients while under the influence of alcohol or nonprescription drugs.

This is a life changing opportunity for the volunteer, the patient and their families. We hope that you will join our team.
