Volunteers are a vital part of Transitions Hospice.
They bring caring concern, comfort and compassion to patients and families and support the work of hospice in countless ways. Volunteers serve throughout our 17 county service area in Georgia and 4 county service are in South Carolina, helping their friends and neighbors at a very difficult time in their lives.
A variety of volunteer opportunities are available, working directly with patients and families or helping with administrative, clerical and support tasks. Whether you have a flexible schedule or limited time to give, Transitions hospice welcomes the gifts of your time and talents.*
The following are some of the ways volunteers serve at Transitions Hospice:
Patient Care & Support
Patient care volunteers provide companionship and emotional support to the patient and family, helping in the home and offering respite to the caregiver. Volunteers also can offer support to grieving families through telephone calls, notes or personal visits, shopping, cooking and cleaning.
Volunteers assist in the office by providing help with special projects, mailings and clerical support.
Volunteers help with fundraising events, memorial services and other special events which support the work of Transitions Hospice.
Many creative people lend their talents to Transitions Hospice. Volunteers provide everything from music to meals, prayer shawls and blanket creations. If you have a gift, we can use it!

*Volunteers experiencing the loss of a loved one are encouraged to wait 12 months before working directly with patients and families.
All volunteer candidates must pass a drug and background check prior to beginning service with our organization. Our agency will cover the cost of both the drug screen and the background check.
