Hospice Volunteer Services

Grane Hospice refers to their volunteers as Earth Angels—because that’s exactly who they are.

Compassion during a Vulnerable Time

Our volunteers are mature, reliable, and compassionate people who provide services to you and your family. Whether in your home or in a facility, our Earth Angel volunteers will provide companionship, help with simple errands, ensure peace of mind, provide clerical services or will create crafts to lift your spirits. Our hospice volunteers are screened and receive comprehensive, specialized hospice training to ensure reliable and compassionate care.

“Volunteering my time to help Grane Hospice patients has been personally rewarding for me in so many ways. I feel like I get out way more than I give many times. It is very self-satisfying to be there for those in need, knowing I am making a difference.”
