Hospice Volunteers are an essential part of the Harbor Hospice team.
Imagine how helpful it would be if someone delivered your medications right to your door; or if someone could stop and visit your loved one when you couldn’t be there. Harbor Hospice volunteers do all that – and so much more.
All Harbor Hospice volunteers go through a comprehensive training. During the training, they see the many ways that volunteer help is used throughout the organization. Trained volunteers are then given the opportunity to choose how they would like to help. Our volunteers provide countless talents, skills and helping hands.
The ‘basic’ training requires a study course on hospice related topics provided in book format, which potential volunteers may take home to study.
“My dad was at Poppen and the staff were just as caring for me as they were for my dad so it is now my turn to be caring back to them. I help make each day a little brighter for the residents by doing the colorful place mats for their meal trays.”
– Nancy Medema, Harbor Hospice Volunteer since 2009

We Honor Our Veteran Patients
At Harbor Hospice it is our privilege and passion to honor each patient and families’ journey. We are invited into each home at a critical, intimate time. It is during these times we learn who each patient really is and we hear their stories. We use our skills to meet their needs, their wishes. We honor their journey.
