Volunteers are critical to Hospice and Palliative Care of Chenango County. Hospice regulations require that at least five percent of our working hours come from specially trained volunteers. 

Patient and Family Volunteers work directly with Hospice familes. They sit with the patient when a caregiver needs to be away. They provide companionship and may help with small household tasks or run errands. Many of them are the loved ones of former patients, helping other Hospice families just as volunteers helped them. All Patient/Family Volunteers must go through a required training.

Administrative and Maintenance Volunteers spend their time in and around the office. They may answer phones, file, or help with mailings. Others complete small fix-it jobs needed to keep the building in tip top shape. These volunteers complete a brief training.

Hospice Helpers support Hospice in various ways, from staffing fund-raisers, helping with fund raisers or mailings, and other Hospice events.
