Project Details

Are you a bilingual Tagalog-English speaker who is able to drive to visit terminally ill patients and their families in the Seattle/King County/South Seattle/Eastside area?

Come make a difference and help to improve someone's quality of life, while gaining experience and skill, by providing compassionate presence and care to Kindred Hospice patients and their families.

Come join our team! Volunteers are an essential part of our dynamic interdisciplinary team (of nurses, doctors, spiritual care providers, social workers and home health aides). Our Patient Care Hospice volunteers help to provide support and comfort to our hospice patients and families, by visiting them during a time of need.


Kindred Hospice of King County Volunteers may serve in a multitude of ways, including offering patient companionship (such as reading a book, engaging in conversation, actively listening by the bedside, playing card games, singing or holding someone's hand). Volunteers may also provide caregiver/family respite, or light household work, running errands or engaging in arts/crafts activity. Volunteers may also assist with special events such as memorial services and veteran pinning ceremonies for our hospice patients and families. Kindred Hospice of Seattle volunteers drive to visit and offer support to hospice patients and families.

We provide free extensive training and ongoing education and support for our volunteers. We value and nurture our volunteers as essential members of our interdisciplinary team. We seek a diverse volunteer team that reflects our multicultural community. Volunteer trainings occur in our office in the Northgate area. Our patients and families are located throughout King County. There is particular need for volunteer support in the South Seattle area.

Qualified candidates must be at least 18 years of age, pass a background check, interview, fingerprinting, TB test, urine drug test, orientation training (which takes approximately 18-22 hours over the course of 2 weeks) and orientation competency test.

Apply anytime! Interviews occurring now (April) for upcoming Spring/Summer 2019 training. Trainings are held once a season in our northgate office.

If interested in joining our team, you are welcome to apply as soon as you are able. After your application materials are received via email/mail, we will schedule an in person interview at our Northgate office.
