Hold a hand. Sing a song. Help with office work. Plan a special event. Address envelopes. Feed a pet. Make a speech. Reach out with a phone call. Listen to cherished memories. Greet visitors to our hospice home. Pat a shoulder. Give a hug. Touch a heart.

However you choose to volunteer at Circle of Life Hospice, there’s a place for you. Whether you want to work directly with our patients & families, or in another role, you can make a difference in someone’s life…starting with your own! Our volunteers often say, “I get back so much more than I give!”

Our volunteers are a critical part of our care team, serving our patients and families in both direct care and supporting roles. If you are looking for a meaningful way to give of your time and yourself, please contact our Volunteer Services Department at 479-750-6632 for more information or fill out the Volunteer Application and attend our next New Volunteer Orientation. Every volunteer must complete an 8-hour mandatory orientation. For patient support volunteers there is additional training required.
