Volunteering at Hospice Maui

“Volunteers are at the heart of our circle of compassionate care”

HM Volunteer class of 2016
Hospice Maui volunteers are the physical, emotional and spiritual backbone of Hospice Maui.


Volunteers provide companionship and caregiving forHarold- gate patients as well as respite for their family members and or caregivers. They also help with fundraising, mailing, office work, events and clean equipment. Our volunteers actively serve as Hospice Maui’s Board of Directors and provide the guidance needed to see the agency succeed now and in the future. They are an integral part of all that we do, and no matter where they serve, our volunteers serve with their hearts.


Patient Care 

Mrs P and Gia2

Patient care volunteers provide compassionate companionship to patients, and often are able to give family members a much needed break.  Volunteers may sit with patients and talk story, help feed them, listen to music, watch TV, or just be present for the patient while the family is on an errand. Some Volunteers also offer Pet Therapy, play music, offer light massage or Reiki, help with household errands, do Food Bank Shops, and many other things that would support the patient and family.

For those who are interested in volunteering directly with patients we offer an annual training. Our September training is now full – THANK YOU!

To be added to the list for our next training (dates tbd), or for more information, please fill out the Volunteer Training Application or contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Sara Sparling .


Hospice Maui Hale

Hale Welcome! (1)Our Hale opened in December 2016. One of the biggest ways our Volunteers have been able to support the Hale team is to help out with meal deliveries from Hale Makua. We also need volunteers for the garden.



Events & Outreach and Administration

Volunteers are a wonderful part of Hospice Maui events! We need help with our own events like ‘Being Mortal – film screening and discussion’, Memorial Day Celebration, and Dine Out for Hospice Maui as well as with annual community events we attend. Volunteers help share information about Hospice Maui with participants, help with set up and breakdown, distribute fliers and engage with community members.

We need administrative support with photo copying, preparing mailings, folder assembly, making lavender boxes and other projects.

“The most precious aspect of being a Hospice Maui volunteer is for me that it connects me to the Maui community in a broader and deeper way than I could ever have imagined. It is such a profound time to enter into people’s lives and so humbling to witness the grace and love and to be of service” – Volunteer Eva D.
