Who Are We?
Volunteers Needed: We are called to touch lives and to serve one another. If you desire to do this, Mercy Hospice seeks volunteers to spend time with patients, help with office work, do music therapy, pet therapy, hair and nail care and massage therapy. For patient safety, a background check and education are completed before patient contact. If you are not comfortable with personal contact, there is plenty to be done in the office. Any assistance is appreciated. Call Chaplain Dave at 417-588-5900 Monday through Friday 8:00am to 5:00pm to find out more.
The mission of the volunteer program embraces the hospice mission of celebrating the value of life: To live fully and comfortably To die with dignity To honor the live of a loved one

Outstanding Needs of Mercy Hospice
Item Needs (click need below to see detail)
We are never too old to find comfort in snuggling a stuffed bear. Mercy Hospice provides a stuffed bear in each welcome basket for both the Hospice patient and for the primary caregiver. Mercy Hospice seeks new or very gently used stuffed bears of all colors, sizes and types. If you would like to donate, you can contact Chaplain Dave at 417-588-5900 or simply drop by the office at 1210 Deadra Dr in Lebanon MO. This is a great project for schools and organizations to get behind!Contributions
As part of the Mercy Hospice Ministry, we provide a large print Bible to each new patient. As with all things these days, these Bibles are harder to purchase because of cost increase and source depletion. If you would like to help purchase Bibles, you can make a donation to Mercy Hospice, 1210 Deadra Dr, Lebanon MO 65536. Your donation can provide hours of comfort to a patient or family member.
Volunteer Needs (click need below to see detail)
Because life goes on, even in illness, families of Mercy Hospice patients at times need someone to companion their loved one while they take care of business. No physical care is provided by Mercy Hospice Volunteers. A volunteer may read to, watch television with or simply be present with the Mercy Hospice patient while family is gone.Make A Difference
If you like people and you would like to make a difference in the life of someone in need, how about spending some time reading to them, visiting with them, or simply being present so that a caregiver may have an hour or two to meet other needs. You choose the area in which you will serve and the distance/time you are available. Make a difference, beocme a Hospice Volunteer.
