Hospice Austin

As a volunteer, you are a treasured member of the Hospice Austin team. Whether you elect to visit patients, share a specific talent or assist a program that interests you, they welcome your support.

Hospice Austin volunteers share their calling to bring comfort and help to others when they need it the most. Volunteers bring companionship to patients and their loved ones. You can visit and read with patients, run errands, write letters, listen to music, play cards or games, take walks, assist the patient and family with projects, provide transportation to appointments, and give the caregiver time to get away for short periods. You can make a profound difference in a family’s life as a compassionate and calm presence who understands what they’re going through.

Hospice Austin volunteers are asked to commit to at least one year of service, unless there are unusual circumstances. Usually, volunteers give about four hours a week with that time being flexible to allow for different schedules. Volunteers working with patients and families are required to attend 6 training sessions and consent to a criminal background check. Contact us today to find out more.
