You can play an important and rewarding role in the care provided by Hudson Valley Hospice, by joining the incredibly generous team of Hudson Valley Hospice Volunteers.
Patient Care Volunteers are specially trained to provide comfort, support and companionship to patients and their families. Training takes place over five sessions, a total of 20 hours, in our Poughkeepsie office. The next Patient Care training will be held in October 2019. Patient Care Volunteer training is a prerequisite for the two-day End of Life Doula training scheduled for mid-November.
Administrative Volunteers provide vital support in the Poughkeepsie and Kingston offices, at community education and fundraising events and work as couriers, delivering needed supplies to home-bound patients. They also receive individualized training and can start at any time.
