Why Volunteer?

We often hear from our volunteers how much working with JourneyCare impacts them personally. JourneyCare volunteers believe that supporting patients and families dealing with serious illness is a very meaningful and rewarding experience.

Volunteering is very much about YOU, too. As a JourneyCare volunteer, you have flexibility and numerous opportunities to make a difference. Whether you work directly with patients and families to help provide care, support and companionship, lend a caring ear for patients to tell their stories, help with household chores, walk a pet, help provide extra support in JourneyCare’s offices, make phone calls or decorate for fundraising events, you help impact the lives of those cared for by JourneyCare.

IFeelYou Make Your Schedule

We realize that volunteering is just one part of your busy life. You can volunteer when it is most convenient for you, whether it’s once in a while or on a regular basis – whenever your schedule allows.

Do What You Like to Do

There are more than 50 volunteer roles available. From beauticians to musicians to avid gardeners, our volunteers share their talents and expertise to help our patients and families make the most of every day.

You Help Wherever Is Best for You

Where you choose to volunteer is totally up to you:

  • You can volunteer at one of our five Hospice CareCenters, where you provide additional support for staff.
  • You can help in any of our offices.
  • You can spend time in your own community, helping JourneyCare patients and families who live near you.
  • From time to time, we also have volunteer opportunities you can complete in the comfort of your own home.
