Chelsea Jewish Hospice Seeking Volunteers

Chelsea Jewish Hospice is seeking volunteers to offer companionship 1-2 hours per week to individuals facing terminal illness who reside in Chelsea, Peabody and the Greater Boston area. Volunteers can make a huge difference for patients through activities such as holding a hand, listening to music, running an errand, or even just sitting quietly. Musicians, certified pet therapy teams, and those trained in alternative modalities such as Reiki are also encouraged to apply.

Chelsea Jewish Hospice is a team of health care professionals who work in collaboration to care for and support patients and their families facing a terminal illness. Care is provided to patients wherever they call home — a skilled nursing facility, assisted living facility, or private residence.

A comprehensive training is provided, which is flexible to accommodate a variety of schedules. For more information on volunteering with Chelsea Jewish Hospice, please contact Jill Hurley at 617-889-0779 or email jhurley@chelseajewish.org.
