Become a Pine Tree Hospice Volunteer

Pine Tree Hospice volunteer education programs, in compliance with Maine State regulations, prepare volunteers to offer hospice and/or bereavement care for families in our community during and after a progressive life-limiting illness.

Hospice 101: Introduction to Hospice for Indirect Care Volunteers

This 4-hour orientation program prepares volunteers to serve as indirect care providers.  "Indirect care" includes services such as cooking, picking up prescriptions, working in the office or library, fund raising, serving on the board or on a committee, but does not include direct interaction with clients or families.  Upon completion, participants interested in becoming a direct care volunteer may choose to be mentored by an experienced Pine Tree Hospice direct care volunteer during visits with hospice clients and families for a maximum of 20 hours.  Hospice 101 is offered as a class and also offered as an Independent Study.  Certificates are awarded after completion.
