Becoming a Hospice volunteer is a very rewarding experience. As a not for profit organization, Hudson Valley Hospice offers opportunities for volunteers to support the work of the Hospice team.
Volunteers are needed to provide direct support for patients and families as well as to help with administrative work in the hospice office.
A 20 hour patient care volunteer training will take place in Poughkeepsie during the month of April. After training, up to four hours per week of volunteering is requested, with a one year commitment.
Registration is required. For more information, please contact Peggy Kuras, Coordinator of Volunteer Services at 473-2273 ext. 1124 or email@example.com

Hospice, Inc. has changed its name to Hudson Valley Hospice. Be assured, we are still your local, not-for-profit healthcare agency dedicated to helping individuals who are near the end of life maintain their dignity and quality of life.
For the past 30+ years, we have provided a full spectrum of compassionate health care and family support to individuals in Dutchess and Ulster Counties who are facing a life limiting illness. As we enter our fourth decade of service to our community, we have decided to refresh our name and image to better reflect our mission and the area in which we serve.
When a patient reaches the end stages of an illness or disease, hospice offers palliative care to help control pain and reduce anxiety. We improve quality of life and time spent with loved ones.
Emotional and Spiritual Support
Hospice care provides emotional and spiritual support to patients and families, including grief and bereavement resources. You and your loved ones don’t have to face these challenges alone.
Medical Care Management
Hospice manages medical care, in-home visits from care providers, acquiring medical supplies, and end-of-life planning.
Respect for the Patient and Family Wishes
Hospice strives to provide the highest quality end-of-life care so that our patients may live with comfort and dignity. Every family is on a different journey, and we acknowledge and respect your decisions and plans. Our goal is to make this difficult time as easy as possible.
We improve quality of life by relieving patients and their loved ones of much of the stress that comes with providing end-of-life care. Families can focus on being together and sharing memories.
