At-home patient and family support

The New Year is here and full of many opportunities. We hope you dive in for new experiences.

If you’re looking to add volunteering to your list, please consider joining us at Empath Health. High school and college students, adults, retirees and groups are always welcome, AND needed.

Many Empath Health volunteers say they receive much more than they give. No matter what volunteer role you choose, you’ll help improve life for those we serve, meet new friends, learn, grow and have fun!

Volunteers started our mission of care at Suncoast Hospice more than 40 years ago and continue to be the heart and soul of Empath Health. Today, our volunteer needs are greater than ever to help us support even more people facing chronic and advanced illnesses or experiencing grief.
