Description:

Acadian Hospice and Palliative Care is looking for volunteers to help provide services that are urgently needed for patients and families. Volunteer Orientations are scheduled monthly and held at the Acadian Hospice and Palliative Care office, located at 458 Heymann Blvd, Building A, Lafayette, La. Please contact the office for schedule.

Caring for the terminally ill is a labor of love that requires a special person with just the right touch. If you have a passion for helping others, consider becoming a hospice volunteer. You can make a profound difference in the lives of patients and their loved ones.

We welcome volunteers from all walks of life. Whether you contribute your time and talents directly with patients or prefer to work behind the scenes, we invite you to become a member of a dedicated group of compassionate caregivers who serve as vital members of our hospice team. The volunteer’s most important role is that of a loving and supportive presence.
