Volunteer Opportunities

Hospice of Anchorage volunteers are people of all backgrounds. There are many opportunities for adults and some for teens and children, too*. There are a variety of ways for volunteers to be involved.  Each person works with the Volunteer Services Coordinator to select opportunities that best suit their interests, abilities, and availability. Many volunteers donate an average of 2-4 hours per week.  As a volunteer, you might:

  • Visit individuals and families and listen to life stories
  • Facilitate a children’s grief group or help with a children’s camp
  • Run errands, prepare a meal, or help with a home chore / yard work / snow removal
  • Provide transportation to an appointment; or transport equipment to a home or an event
  • Help with fundraising efforts, events, health fairs, or public speaking
  • Offer certified professional care: massage, hair care, etc.
  • Share talents: music, spiritual care, arts & crafts
  • Support educational programs
  • Serve on the Board of Directors or a special committee
  • *Teens might help with children’s grief groups and camps
  • *Teens and Children might help with fundraisers like “Trick or Treat in the Heat” or the Holiday “Remembrance Tree,” or events like “Remembering the Light”

Volunteers working with hospice clients and families complete in-depth training of about 14 hours.  Those working with children’s grief programs complete approximately 30 hours of training. Within these trainings, volunteers become familiar with hospice concepts, learn about physical and emotional needs of the dying and grieving, examine their own attitudes and feelings concerning death, and enhance their communication and listening skills.
