Shepherd Home is grateful for the many volunteers who donate their time and compassion to support our home and most importantly, our residents.

There are many ways you can volunteer:

Resident Care
Our Resident Care volunteers provide personal care to our residents and extend support and hospitality to the residents’ family and friends.
Prospective volunteers have the opportunity to shadow our nurse, and other volunteers to acquaint themselves with the care given at Shepherd Home.
Requirements:  All you need is a compassionate heart and a drive to help those who are terminally to live their best life.  We will teach you the rest.

Facilities
Do you enjoy home maintenance and gardening ?  We are always in need of volunteers to help with yard work, flower bed maintenance, plumbing, electrical work, simple repairs, snow shoveling and general home upkeep.

Fundraising
Shepherd Home relies on fundraising events to generate a large percentage of our annual budget.  Do you have event planning experience?  Or ideas and enthusiasm to create memorable events for an important cause? Come join one of our committees and help us to continue our mission and to build community awareness.

Per Diem Nurses
We welcome nurses with hospice experience to join our on-call team. If you have availability to fill an occasional eight hour weekday shift; as well as, take on-call a few weekends a year, we would love to hear from you.
