In the U.S., hospice care was started by volunteers in the 1970s. Even now, hospices use volunteers in many ways. A volunteer might visit a patient in the home to provide company, run errands, babysit young children, do some light housekeeping or meal preparation, or other tasks to help out the patient and caregivers. Administrative volunteers help hospices with office work, fundraising, or community programs.
