Merrimack Valley Hospice offers many meaningful volunteer opportunities.  Volunteers come from all walks of life, with varied experiences and skills.  Each shares the desire to make a difference through their presence – a true gift to our hospice patients and families.

Many volunteers work in private homes, nursing homes and assisted living facilities throughout eastern Massachusetts, southern New Hampshire and York County, Maine as well as at High Pointe House in Haverhill, MA. Others donate their time and talent helping in the administrative offices, on special projects or assist at fundraising events.

Volunteers receive specialized training and ongoing education, much like our clinical staff, as they are critical members of the hospice team*.

*Training and TB testing are not required for volunteers who exclusively assist with administrative support and special events.
