Hospice Volunteers Needed

Lutheran Home Care & Hospice is currently seeking committed and caring individuals interested in becoming hospice volunteers for clients and their families in Franklin and Fulton counties. Individuals with day, evening or weekend availability are needed. Hospice volunteering doesn't have to be a huge time commitment. You can give as little or as much time as is comfortable.

Hospice volunteers assist and support those coping with terminal illnesses in their homes by providing emotional support to clients and families, relief and respite to caregivers, and companionship when it is needed most. Bereavement volunteers provide support to the bereaved by making supportive phone calls and visits as needed. Anyone having a special talent, please call us to discuss how we might be able to utilize that to benefit the clients.

Training is provided numerous times throughout the year at no charge. If interested and wanting more information, please contact Deb Rosinski at 717-217-3520.

The hospice program is a special team of people dedicated to caring for those living with a terminal illness and their families. The agency provides hospice services in Franklin, Fulton and Adams counties in Pennsylvania. Lutheran Home Care & Hospice is a ministry of Lutheran Social Services. Further information about hospice or any other agency services may be obtained by calling 800-840-9081.
