The Value of Excellent Training

The Aime Hospice Care training program educates and enlightens volunteers on many topics, including hospice mission and regulations, effective communication skills, care and comfort measures, and much more. During the training program, volunteers will also meet the leadership of Aime Hospice Care, as well of many of the staff. Beyond formal training, volunteers have access to the Volunteer Coordinator at any time for comments, concerns and ongoing hospice education.

To join Aime Hospice Care’s volunteer team, simply contact the volunteer coordinator at any one of our four Aime Hospice Care offices. The volunteer coordinator will supply an application, discuss your interests and availability, and describe current opportunities.

Positions are available for all age groups and ability levels, and flexible schedules are possible for most service opportunities. We work to ensure that assignments suit your preferences, skills, and abilities.
