Hospice volunteers - make a difference in a patient's life today!

Hospice volunteers are needed throughout Cambria County for Community Nursing Hospice Care. All training will be provided. Volunteer in any of the following areas:

Home visits - Provide companionship and socialization by visiting with the patient & caregiver. Play card games, read, or enjoy conversation together.  Provide a break for the caregiver.

Bereavement - Follow up with the family after the patient's death through phone calls, cards, letters or a visit once a month. This assignment can be done from home and has flexible hours.

Spiritual support - Provide spiritual support with prayer, offering communion or Bible reading and be involved in our annual memorial services. This group consists of Pastors, Deacons, Priests, as well as lay people.

Why choose to volunteer with Community Nursing Hospice Care?
Some volunteers want to help others, some want career experience, and others benefit most from friendship. Whatever your reason, there are many benefits to being on our volunteer team. As a UPMC volunteer, training programs are provided to ensure you are prepared for a meaningful and fulfilling assignment.
