Volunteer

Volunteering your time with Mountain Valley Hospice & Palliative Care can change your life and the lives of others.

Whether it’s a smile, companionship, reading or using your talents to ease the weight of a day for a patient or family member, hospice volunteers are rewarded with the appreciation of those they serve. We offer a free comprehensive training program each month that includes understanding hospice, symptom management, communication and grief.
