July 13, 2021

Volunteering is a compelling way to make a difference in yourself, your community, and the world. Even the most minor task can have a substantial positive impact on the lives and organizations in need.

 

Volunteering Makes a Difference

Volunteers are not only providing an invaluable contribution to their communities, but they also experience improved mental well-being and overall happiness. People who volunteer feel better—physically, mentally, and emotionally. Volunteers experience mood improvement, lower stress levels, and an enriched sense of purpose.

Additionally, becoming a volunteer can help create a stronger connection to your community, especially for those in retirement, stay connected with others, and the opportunity to expand upon and build professional skills.

 

How Hospice Volunteers Serve

Hospice volunteers are retirees, working professionals, and students. They make use of their time and skills to serve in many ways:

  • Visiting patients to provide companionship and socialization.
  • Running errands such as medication and supply deliveries.
  • Cutting and styling patients’ hair.
  • Providing pet therapy.
  • Helping patients with light housekeeping.
  • Assisting with fundraising events and administrative projects.

These are just a few examples of ways EverHeart Hospice volunteers serve. For a complete list of opportunities and additional information on volunteering, please visit our volunteers’ page.

Volunteers bring love, energy, dedication, and compassion that help enrich the lives of our patients, our professional care team, and our community in a profound way.
