Volunteers are vital members of the Georgia Mountains Hospice Team, who help families handle illness, loss and grief. In fact, many times those who have experienced grief and the loss of a loved one become some of the most effective volunteers. Volunteering can truly make a difference in someone’s life as well as offer great rewards for the volunteer.

Training orientation is offered on the first Tuesday of every other month. Just bring a caring heart and willingness to serve.

    As a volunteer, I realize that I am subject to a code of ethics similar to that which binds the professional in the field in which I work. I, like them, assume certain responsibilities and expect to account for what I do in terms of what is expected of me.

    I understand that any information that is disclosed to me while assisting the Hospice is confidential.

    I interpret “volunteer” to mean that I have agreed to work without compensation in money. Having been accepted as a volunteer worker, I expect to do my work according to the standards set forth in the Volunteer Policies and Procedures.
