Mayo Hospice Volunteers are a special kind of people. Volunteers are a vital part of the caring hospice team and bring a personal touch to terminally ill patients and their families. The efforts of Mayo Hospice volunteers help us fulfill our mission.
The Mayo Hospice volunteer provides services essential to hospice care. They belong to a healthcare team that includes dedicated physicians, nurses, social workers and chaplains.
Mayo Hospice Program volunteers have qualities that include emotional stability, strong communication skills, flexible schedules and nonjudgmental attitudes. Each of the volunteers provides a unique offering of interests, skills, talents and life experiences. Look at the list below or see Hospice Volunteer Opportunities to learn about services currently provided by Mayo Hospice Volunteers.
Because a Hospice Volunteer experiences many things unique to that group, having questions before volunteering is normal. The Commonly Asked Questions page will help give you answers.
