Volunteer Training

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 kurasp@hvhospice.org

In Ulster County, contact Terri St. John at 338-5397 ext.2207 or stjohnt@hvhospice.org

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.
