You can make a big difference
Many Coastal Hospice volunteers say it is an experience that changes their lives.
Coastal Hospice is a non-profit organization providing compassion, comfort and care to those nearing the end of life and their families. We are a vital part of the Lower Shore community, and volunteers are a vital part of our service.
Tell us your interests and how and where you would like to help, and we will match you with one of our volunteer opportunities. We can work within your schedule, and give you the skills you’ll need to be a Coastal Hospice volunteer.
Ways you can help
Patient and Family Care
Our volunteers visit with patients and their families in their own homes or at a facility, and offer the support they need by running errands, providing companionship, fixing lunch, or giving caregivers a much-needed break.
Staff and Office Support
Our volunteers assist with office duties and community education, prepare mailings, attend health fairs, and help with fundraising events.
Our Thrift Shop in Berlin supports Coastal Hospice at the Ocean. Our volunteers assist customers, create displays, operate the cash register, or sort and price donations.
Part of our mission is to continue to support families after their loved one has passed. Our volunteers make phone calls, prepare mailings and assist with our grief support group meetings.
We Honor Veterans
Our veteran volunteers visit our veteran patients, present them with a certificate of honor and patriotic blanket, and thank them for their service.
Compass is a free, non-medical program for individuals and families coping with a serious illness. Compass volunteers take clients to appointments, grocery shopping, or on outings, provide companionship, and give caregivers a break.
