Our Volunteers: The Heart of Hospice

Volunteer Application Volunteer Services Rack Card

In a fast-paced world, it is easy to get caught in the hustle and bustle of life. When we take the time to stop and assess our own lives, we often ask: what is it that truly matters?  Have I made a difference?

“As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace.” — 1 Peter 4:10

Cypress Basin Hospice invites you to serve one another through our Volunteer Services Program. Our volunteer opportunities range from socialization for our patients and their families, pet therapy programs, pet walking programs, music ministry programs, veteran programs, and administrative activities; each is tailored to fit your schedule.

None of us want to imagine a loved one alone during the end stages of life. However, this happens all too frequently. With your help and partnership, we can help eliminate the isolation one may feel when they are diagnosed with a terminal illness. By giving as little as one hour of your time per month you can help make a difference in the life of the patients of Cypress Basin Hospice.
