Volunteers are vital to the Ashanti team.

Volunteers offer a variety of services to Ashanti clients and their families and friends, including companionship, respite visits (accommodations based on availability), and other caring support.

While positively affecting the lives of our clients, volunteers also benefit from their roles. Ashanti volunteers describe their work as personally meaningful and emotionally rewarding.

Volunteers must possess compassion and understanding for those on their end-of-life journeys. All Ashanti volunteers complete a thorough orientation and receive free, comprehensive training.

Volunteers contribute to Ashanti Hospice and Palliative Care in the following ways:

  • Working alongside professional staff
  • Running errands for clients or their families
  • Staying with clients while family members get rest
  • Reading out loud to clients
  • Assisting staff with administrative tasks
  • Lifting a client’s spirits with a friendly visit
  • Helping clients write letters
  • Listening to clients’ stories
  • Playing cards, chess, or board games with clients

I believe in Ashanti’s mission and its dedicated staff who care for individuals and their families during their journey to the end of life. Volunteering is paying it forward. Volunteering is making a difference. Volunteering is rewarding.
