Volunteers are an integral part of the MV Hospice Palliative Care Team working under the direction of our Clinical Director to provide a variety of services.  We have many different opportunities for committed, caring individuals and teams who would like to make a difference in someone’s life. There are no minimum or maximum hours required to be a volunteer.  Volunteers give of their time as they are able.  Some enjoy a specific day and time each week, while others volunteer for a specific person or project as needed.  Services are offered in person’s homes or in institutions, where ever the person resides so support may be provided in varied locations. Volunteers may assist in any preferred location.
