Tygerberg Hospice volunteers are a critical component of the hospice program. They are the “heart of hospice.” Volunteering at Tygerberg Hospice is a way to enrich your own life while enriching someone else’s life in your community.

Who can be a Volunteer?

  • Persons who are 18 years of age or older
  • Students
  • Homemakers
  • Retirees
  • Working Professionals
  • Those who are looking to brighten someone else’s life

We recommend that prospective volunteers who have experienced the death of a close loved one wait a year before they start volunteering.
