Hospice Volunteers Needed

Lutheran Home Care & Hos- pice 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 to you.

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. If you have a special talent, please call us to discuss how we might be able to utilize that to benefit our clients.

Training is provided numerous times throughout the year at no charge. If you are interested and would like more information, please contact Tammy Hawbaker 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. For further information about hospice or any other agency services, call 800-840-9081.
