Community Impact

Islands Hospice is making a difference in our community through creative and transformational programs.

Hospice Volunteer Program

Give the gift of your time and compassion. Join our team of volunteers in spreading joy, hope and comfort to our patients and their loved ones.

Volunteers are crucial to our mission. They respond to the needs of patients and families, support Islands Hospice staff (freeing them to focus on their areas of expertise) and work behind the scenes to help us get the job done!  Islands Hospice is always on the lookout to fill the following volunteer positions:
  • Support Volunteer: These volunteers work in the office, completing primarily administrative tasks that help us accomplish the work of caring for patients and their loved ones. 
  • Companion Volunteer: These volunteers work primarily in homes and facilities, interacting directly with patients and their loved ones. They offer friendship, help with household tasks and free up family caregivers to check off a few boxes on their own “to-do” list.
  • Event Volunteer: If you like special events, this is the volunteer role for you!  Event volunteers help us to plan and execute events for our staff, volunteers and patients, and are crucial in putting together our annual remembrance ceremony.
  • Specialist Volunteer: If you have a special gift or talent you’d like to share with our patients, families and staff, this is a great place to start. Specialist volunteers help provide pet therapy, lei making, special music for events, etc. 
To protect the health and safety of our patients, family, and staff, we may modify the volunteer tasks during the pandemic. We are continuing to monitor volunteer involvement and changing circumstances. If you are interested in updated information about a specific position, please contact our volunteer coordinator Lurline Liu (lliu@islandshospice.com). Mahalo for your assistance and flexibility.

If you'd like to donate your time to Islands Hospice, please complete our short contact form.  Our volunteer services department will get back to you within the next week. Please note that all volunteers must show proof of COVID-19 vaccination prior to their first shift.
