Generosity Goes a Long Way

Arizona Care Hospice is fortunate to provide a number of our services because of the generosity of our volunteers. Serving as valued members of the Arizona Care Hospice team, volunteers enhance the patient and family experience by meeting specific needs.

Compassion & Desire to Help

Our volunteers are ordinary people who share two common characteristics: compassion and a desire to help. Our volunteers are deeply committed to providing support to our patients through a variety of ways. Our patients are located throughout the valley and northern Arizona. Patients live in private homes or in-care facilities. Volunteers can choose their own assignments and typically see patients within a few miles of their own home.

Volunteer FAQs

How do I volunteer?
It’s easy! Just request an application! Either request an application by completing the form below, call us at (480) 588-8200, or pick one up in-person!
Is mileage reimbursement available for volunteers?
We do not reimburse mileage, but we do our best to find volunteers who live in the same vicinity as the patient to whom they are assigned.
Do I have to be a volunteer for a minimum number of hours?
The schedule is decided upon by the volunteer and the patient/caregiver/family. There is no minimum number of hours, but we do ask that our volunteers be willing to donate a minimum of 1 or 2 hours per week. There may be times when you won’t have a patient, but we request that you will commit to donating this time when we need a volunteer in your area.
Are there any costs involved to volunteer?
Just your time. All costs involved in the application process are paid by Arizona Care Hospice. A TB test, background check, and comprehensive training will be provided.
Do I need medical experience or training?
You do not need medical experience and we will provide the training necessary to volunteer. The orientation can be held at our office in Fountain Hills or we will be happy to meet with you at a convenient location of your choosing. Volunteers will not feed, transfer, transport, administer medications, assist with personal care or provide counseling to patients.
What are the requirements for Arizona Care Hospice volunteers?
The two most important characteristics of our volunteers are compassion and a desire to help. Whether our volunteers are playing board games with a patient or offering respite for the caregiver, our volunteers will be using skills that they already possess. Volunteer activities can include companionship, emotional support, reading to the patient, playing music, or assisting with light housekeeping chores. We believe that hospice is not a place. Hospice is a philosophy; one that centers on the belief that every individual has the right to die comfortably and with dignity. Volunteers play a large part in making that happen.
