Volunteer

Volunteer—it could make a difference in someone else’s life, or it could make a difference in your own life. There is something for everyone to be a part of. For me, it’s the connections I make, and the good feelings I walk away with, whether I stood and listened to someone talk about their loved one that has passed away or the great care that they got at Midland Care—just being there and listening, that means a lot to others.
Beth Brown, Midland Care Findables Volunteer

In 1978, a small group of volunteers concerned with quality of life for the dying formed Hospice of Topeka. Then and now, volunteers are at the heart of Midland Care. Our training prepares them to serve in ways that match their passions and strengths. If you want to give back, we have a place for you.

Patient Care Volunteers work directly with those we serve. These volunteers visit patients in their homes to socialize, read books, play games, share music, and support family caregivers. They also work with adults, teens and children following the death of a loved one. Patient Care volunteers are good listeners, compassionate and empathetic.

Administrative Volunteers keep Midland Care running smoothly with a wide range of tasks supporting staff, patients and caregivers. These volunteers make check-in calls, care for plants, deliver flowers and assist in office tasks. Administrative volunteers are detail-oriented, patient and flexible.

Retail Volunteers work at Findables, an upscale resale store in Topeka that funds charity care. These volunteers receive and sort donations, assist customers and create displays. Retail volunteers are friendly, outgoing and creative.

Youth Corps Volunteers are teens who serve in many capacities, mentored by adult volunteers. Youth Corps volunteers are looking for opportunities to build character and leadership skills.
