Chelsea Jewish Hospice is seeking volunteers to offer companionship one to two hours per week to individuals facing terminal illness. 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, operated by nonprofit Chelsea Jewish Lifecare, comprises 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. Individuals who reside in Chelsea, Peabody and the Greater Boston area are in close proximity to the Chelsea and Peabody campuses.
