Volunteering at Hospice of Davidson County

The Heart of Hospice


Volunteers can be professionals, retirees, students, or anyone with a strong desire to help care for and support our patients. Many volunteers have a personal story, and volunteering for hospice gives them an outlet to express themselves, their feelings, and experiences in a positive manner by giving back to others.

While many find value in offering companionship for patients and allowing caregivers to take a break from their duties, we understand that direct family contact is not for everyone. Our additional volunteer needs are essential in keeping Hospice of Davidson County a safe, caring, communicative place for families to find comfort with roles ranging from fundraising to administrative duties, special event coordinating, and even yard work and arts and crafts.
