Voluntary. Committed. Together.Moving more together - Donate your time to us!
Volunteering, civic engagement or voluntary work: the names for a voluntary activity are varied, but what is always meant is the commitment to others in which you yourself also gain - you get involved, get to know like-minded people, do something meaningful and can simply have fun.
Motivated to participate here?
We attach great importance to voluntary help - whether in civil protection, in the ambulance service, in the outpatient hospice service, the Wünschewagen or in contact with senior citizens. Everywhere, volunteers are helping others and donating their time. If you too can imagine getting involved and would like to support our work, we look forward to hearing from you!

Outpatient hospice service
Volunteering is a firm pillar in the hospice movement. However, it is not always only dying people who are accompanied by volunteers. Often, family members and friends are also dependent on help and need comfort, understanding and relief. Sometimes it is small gestures that can make a big difference: Listening, sharing joy and sorrow, reading aloud, going for a walk and much more. New hospice companions are prepared for their future volunteer work in five weekend seminars and a 40-hour internship. During their volunteer work, they are supported by regular telephone and personal counseling, supervision/practice counseling, and continuing education opportunities.

Gratitude, appreciation and the feeling of having done something good for others: Especially in the care sector, they get a lot in return for their volunteer work. Whether it's playing a game together, reading from the newspaper or going for a walk, elderly people in care facilities are happy to be talked to and given a change of pace.
