Liberty HomeCare & Hospice is Searching for Compassionate Volunteers


For those facing life-limiting illnesses without a support system, Liberty HomeCare & Hospice Volunteers can make all the difference in the world. They are more than just a volunteer — they are a friend.  If a patient does have a support system in place, they are a breath of fresh air so caregivers can focus on their own health for a moment while a volunteer steps in to assist. As the demand for home care and hospice grows, so does the need for volunteers who play such a vital role at a critical point in our patients’ lives.

Compassionate volunteers are needed in a variety of roles. Depending on your comfort level, there are opportunities to interact with patients in-person, over the phone or by simply writing a letter or birthday card. Our volunteer managers will work with you to help you find the perfect fit that compliments your natural skills and what you are passionate about.

There are several ways you can volunteer your time, both in person or in the comfort of your own home. 


Become a Patient/Family Volunteer:

Patient/family volunteers assist in providing care and support to patients and their family by making regular visits. They can sit with the patient while caregivers run errands or complete other tasks. This simple gesture is imperative to prevent caregiver burnout, which happens to some caregivers who focus so much on their loved one that they forget to take care of their own mental and physical health. 

Become a Life Enrichment Volunteer:

Life enrichment volunteers assist with activities at facilities. These activities include bingo, singing or reading the newspaper. The ideal volunteer is energetic and comfortable leading a group of seniors in activities. 

Provide Emotional Support with a Pet Companion:

Volunteers with well-trained pets are encouraged to bring them along to visit patients to provide emotional comfort and support. 

Become a Pen-Pal:

Volunteers are needed to write letters or birthday cards to patients to let them know someone is thinking of them. 

Become an Eleventh Hour Volunteer:

Eleventh hour volunteers are needed in the final moments of a patient’s life. They can hold their hand, play soft music, read a passage aloud or simply be present. The goal is to ensure no one passes away alone. 

Become a Bereavement Volunteer:

Bereavement volunteers are needed in person or by telephone to provide support for families who have lost a loved. Simply being there to listen can make all the difference to someone who is grieving. 

Sew Memory Bears:

Volunteers with sewing experience can use their skills to make Memory Bears. The bears are created using articles of clothing donated by family members of our deceased patients. The bears are kept as a keepsake for the family and can hopefully help them through the grieving process. This is an easy way to volunteer from the comfort of your own home while providing a family with a special memento of their loved one.

Sew Bears for Children:

In some cases, a stuffed bear can be used to help explain the illness or pending death of a loved one to a child. We will provide the bear pattern, stuffing and thread.
