Volunteers are people like you who are willing to give their time and talent to help Hospice families in many ways. They are individuals of all ages and life paths and vital members of the Hospice team.
Volunteers learn about the Hospice program and its role in the team, during training and an orientation class. We offer periodic training for volunteers and providers of medical services. Course materials have a minimum cost per volunteer and a reservation is required. Contact the Hospice Mazatlán IAP office. When training is completed, volunteers can choose from a variety of opportunities to assist patients and their family or other supportive positions such as:
- Patient Support Volunteers
- Companions in patient visits
- Carrying out family responsibilities
- Volunteers to support a service
- Clerical or office support
- Community events
- Events to collect funds
- Volunteers in support during mourning
- Companions on visits with relatives
