Volunteer Inquiry

Submitting a Volunteer Inquiry Form is the first step to becoming a Hospice Volunteer.

The spirit of a Hospice Volunteer comes from a genuine desire to provide comfort, peace and care to patients, caregivers and families during the end of life journey. People of all ages can become hospice volunteers, and make a profound difference in the lives of the individuals they serve.

Hospice Home Care provides many avenues for volunteers to join our teams located in eight branch offices and one inpatient facility in Arkansas: Comfort Care Center, Conway, Hot Springs, Hot Springs Village, Little Rock, Monticello, Searcy and White Hall. The Corporate Office located in Little Rock, is also a place volunteers are always welcome to lend a hand!

Whether someone wishes to volunteer directly with patients and families, or they feel more comfortable behind the scenes in an office setting, Hospice Home Care Volunteers are an integral part of how care is provided.

Hospice Home Care encourages anyone who has a heart for volunteering to give their time, talent and treasure as their heart leads them. Examples of volunteer activities at Hospice Home Care include:

  • In-home/in-person family time
  • Telephone calls to homebound patients
  • Art / Music at the bedside for individual patients
  • Companionship
  • Shopping and running errands
  • Pet Therapy
  • Companion vigils (11th hour volunteers)
  • Life Sketches (short stories about a patient's life)
  • Bereavement support (telephone calls, composing notes)
  • Filing and copying
  • Packaging patient information packets
  • Deliver food boxes to patient homes
  • Baking cookies and popping popcorn
  • Pampering patients by painting their nails or braiding hair
  • Seasonal decorating for holidays and other projects
  • Planting flowers and filling bird feeders

Students from Hendrix College in Conway, who are planning to become physicians, recently spent a significant number of days volunteering at the Comfort Care Center. They were encouraged to think and reflect upon matters surrounding end-of-life care, and interact with patients and families. The response was incredible! Watch the video to see students, faculty, and hospice staff members share their perspectives on the experience.

Comfort and peace on the end of life’s journey

Facing the end of life can be hard. Facing it alone, in the absence of family, friends, financial resources and qualified caregivers, is even harder.

The Tribute of Life Foundation believes that everyone deserves to complete their journey in a warm, clean bed, surrounded by people who care deeply about meeting their medical, social, emotional and spiritual needs. Through our 'No One is Alone' initiative, we are committed to funding two beds in the Comfort Care Center for people who could not afford it otherwise.
