Life is short and we have never too much time for gladdening the hearts of those who are traveling the dark journey
with us. Oh be swift to live, make haste to be kind.
-Henri Frederick Amiel
Volunteers have often been described as “the heart of Hospice”. Historically, ‘hospice’ services have been offered by volunteers for centuries. The Alexian Brothers have been providing hospice services for 700 years by ministering to the sick and dying. Today, Medicare certified hospices continue to rely on volunteers to fill many roles:
- Patient and family support
- Bereavement support
- Office support
- Special projects
- Marketing, and other possibilities

Everyone can be great because anyone can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't even have to
make your subject and your verb agree to serve... You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love...
-Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
