As a community supported organization, Hospice Volunteers of Waterville Area exists because of the generosity, dedication, and compassion of our volunteers. Whether you are interested in volunteering in our hospice care or bereavement programs, working outside in our hospice garden, or giving a few hours a week to work in the resale shop, we would love to have you as a volunteer!


Hospice Care Volunteers provide direct support to our clients and their families, such as companionship visits, respite care, help with errands, life review and assistance with hobbies and crafts. Following a 24-hour training program, volunteers receive ongoing supervision and continuing education.  Our next training will be offered in August 2022. 


For more information about Hospice Direct Care Volunteers, please contact Jillian Roy at or call (207) 873-3615, extension 11. 

Our Bereavement Care Volunteers facilitate our grief support groups for adults as well as provide one-on-one peer support to clients. Our Hope's Place Volunteers facilitate our groups for grieving children. All bereavement volunteers are trained in group facilitation and issues around grief and loss.

Our next series of training sessions will begin October 18th. See our flyer below for more details or contact our Hope's Place Coordinator Jillian Roy at 873-3615 ext. 11 or at!
