Volunteer Training

We are seeking warm and compassionate people to serve as hospice volunteers. Duties include simple acts, like sitting and talking or holding a hand, that have a tremendous impact on someone’s life. Hospice volunteers who work with patients and families go wherever the patient is, including a private home, a long-term care facility or a hospital. Hospice is the type of care being provided, not the location.

We provide the information and confidence you need through a 14-hour training program that takes place over two days, as approved by Medicare and the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, we have an upcoming training session scheduled. Please visit fill out an application and call us at (319) 351-5665 to register.

Friday, August 25th and Saturday, August 26th

8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Mercy Medical Plaza

520 Jefferson St., Iowa City
