Volunteer Opportunities

Trained volunteers are an integral part of the Hospice of the Fisher Home’s team, both at our hospice residence and in patients’ homes.

As an introduction to our hospice program and our philosophy, and as mandated by federal regulations, new volunteers take part in a training course led by the Fisher Home’s volunteer coordinator. This course teaches newcomers about the principles of hospice, introduces them to our clinical and administrative staff, defines their role as volunteer members of our staff, and explores personal attitudes toward dying and death. The volunteer coordinator then monitors new volunteers’ visits to the residence or to patients’ homes, offering advice and counsel along the way.


Volunteers at the Hospice of the Fisher Home represent a wide range of ages, ethnicity, backgrounds, and cultural interests. All must agree to a one-year commitment of two hours a week.


The Fisher Home volunteer program is actively seeking veterans to provide companionship to our veteran patients, recognizing their unique needs and the special camaraderie that may offer enrichment and comfort at the end of life.

For more information about volunteering or to become a member of the volunteer team, please contact our volunteer coordinator, Barbara Russell at brussell@fisherhome.org
