Volunteers are required to be 16 or older. There is no requirement to how much, or how little you can volunteer your time. It is not uncommon for people whose loved one died in hospice care to want to volunteer for the hospice provider soon after the death, although we do recommend waiting at least a year after your loved ones death before becoming a volunteer as to ensure you have given yourself proper time to grieve. To ensure that prospective volunteers are equipped for the challenge of working with the dying, they are required to complete a background check, an orientation and training sessions and have a valid driver’s license if applicable.
