Become a Volunteer
Hospice Volunteers are an essential part of the Lake Superior Hospice team. Volunteers help us carry out our mission in many ways, from helping in the office to helping the people we serve who are facing a serious illness.
Our volunteers can choose to help in many different capacities. Some of the services our volunteers currently provide include office assistance, gardening, respite care, reading to patients, friendly visits, veteran-to-veteran, helping patients and families with basic day-to-day tasks and many other things. Volunteers are paired with an opportunity that fits their comfort level and the talents they hope to use while being a hospice volunteer.

Kind of Care
“Every year, more than 1.65 million people living with a life-limiting illness receive care from hospice and palliative care providers in this country,” said J. Donald Schumacher, president and CEO of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization. “These highly-trained professionals don’t only provide quality medical care. They work to make sure patients and families find dignity, respect, and love during life’s most difficult journey.”
Hospice is more than traditional healthcare. Hospice and palliative care programs provide pain management, symptom control, psychosocial support, and spiritual care to patients and their families when a cure is not possible. Hospice and palliative care combines the highest level of quality medical care with the emotional and spiritual support that families need most when facing the end of life.
Hospice care is available to people of all ages, with any illness. Hospice professionals and trained volunteers will ask you what’s important and listen to what you say. They make your wishes a priority.
If you or a loved one is facing a serious or life-limiting illness, the time to find out more about hospice and palliative care is right now.
