Volunteer at the Hospice
At Chapman House, we rely on volunteers to donate thousands of heartfelt hours to take care of this hospice home and its residents and families. We have a carefully chosen team of volunteers that undergo training specific to their roles aside and from direct medical care. Here is a sample of some opportunities that we are inviting you to explore:
RECEPTIONIST: A friendly welcoming presence who greets visitors, answers the telephone and relays messages, providing directions within the hospice, assisting with signing in/out, small administrative tasks.
RESIDENT & FAMILY CARE: These volunteers – under the supervision of nursing staff, visit with the terminally ill, meet them “where they are” and assist as necessary.
KITCHEN: To assist the chef in all aspects of making & delivering meals. Assuring the residents are nourished in more ways than one.
MAINTENANCE: To assist staff with tasks of maintaining this house inside and out. “Jack or Jill “of all trades at times physically demanding, yet immensely rewarding.
GARDENING: Who doesn’t enjoy looking at a well-kept garden in bloom? Volunteers assist with planting, trimming, watering, digging, transplanting – all with a green thumb and warm heart.
LAUNDRY: As a specialized volunteer, you will load, unload, fold, & store freshly laundered linens for the household residents under the supervision of our nursing staff.
There are a variety of other opportunities to volunteer as well on occasion. Just ask! We welcome you to fill out the application below so we can contact you and help find a position that suits you and meets the needs of our residents and their community home.
NOTE: while we appreciate all offers of help, if you have dealt with death, loss and bereavement within the past 12 months, we ask that you wait until a year has passed before volunteering.
