Volunteer positions include patient-related and non-patient-related jobs. Hospice volunteers provide companionship and support for patients by visiting them in their home, or in the nursing home or assisted living facility. Volunteer activities include: conversation and reminiscing, running errands for the family or simply holding a hand and listening. The agency is especially in need of volunteers from the Niagara Falls area.

Non-patient related opportunities include helping with community outreach, clerical tasks and fund-raising efforts.
