Hosparus Health is encouraging members of the community to kick off their New Year’s resolutions by volunteering with the not-for-profit hospice and palliative care organization. The year’s first free, in-person volunteer training session is scheduled on the Martin Luther King, Jr., Day of Service on Monday, January 16, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 6200 Dutchmans Lane, Louisville.  

Hosparus was founded by volunteers more than 40 years ago, and they still play a vital role in providing compassionate care, comfort and support to seriously ill patients and their caregivers to this day in Jefferson, Bullitt, Henry, Shelby, Spencer and Trimble counties. Depending on their interests, volunteers provide presence and support to patients and respite to their caregivers, bereavement care, and veteran-to-veteran companionship. Currently, Hosparus is especially in need of patient care volunteers, who visit patients wherever they call home.  


  • Participants are required to register to attend the training by January 9.
  • All volunteers must provide documentation for COVID-19 vaccination before starting.
