“It is only in the giving of oneself to others that we truly live.” – Dr. Ethel Percy Andrus

Hospice volunteers are men and women in the The Hospice of Baton Rouge service area who have dedicated themselves to providing assistance to The Hospice of Baton Rouge in an effort to do all that is necessary to meet patient, family and staff needs. Our volunteers are an integral part of the hospice program and without their dedication and support The Hospice of Baton Rouge could not survive. Volunteers provide a wide range of services including such areas as working at our Inpatient Facility, making bereavement calls, making community presentations, working at healthfairs, fundraising, providing respite care for patient families, running errands and clerical tasks.

Being a hospice volunteer can be an extremely rewarding experience. It can afford you the opportunity to have a look at humanity from a different perspective. Hospice volunteering is what YOU make of it! Roles and time commitments are flexible for each volunteer.

If you have any questions about volunteering, please email volunteercoordinator@hospicebr.org or call 225-767-4673.

It is the policy of our agency to require all potential Direct Care Volunteers to wait at least 12 months after experiencing the loss of a loved one before she/he can serve as a Direct Care Volunteer.
