Evercare Hospice and Palliative Care are looking for individuals just like you to volunteer their time visiting with our patients on Hospice. Your presence will help to make the time our patient has left very precious. Each patient has a life limiting illness and would benefit from your visits tremendously. Sitting with the patient and holding their hand, reading to them, listening to music or watching TV would make them feel special, loved, wanted and not alone and isolated. A touch, a kind word and just your presence during this time will make an impact on the life they have left to live. It is an honor to share someone's last days, and you can be a part of making these days as memorable and loving as possible. At Evercare Hospice and Palliative Care our volunteers have a knack for knowing how to bring "JOY" to our patients whether it be through sitting in silence or possibly listening to the patient talk about their life and telling the same story more than once! It could be movie day where you watch television or a favorite movie (ask what their favorite movie is and bring with you). Take the patient for a walk in the garden where they can feel the sun shining on their face again or hear the birds singing and see flowers in bloom. What ever it is that makes them feel alive, wanted, special and most of all loved by someone - then we are doing what we should be doing and that is paying it forward. All volunteers receive training before entering the patient’s home. We also require each volunteer to have a 2 step TB test, a drug screening (Hepatitis B vaccination is offered but not mandatory) and a criminal background check, all at no cost to the volunteer. Our patients are located throughout Orange County and reside either in their own home, Assisted Living, Nursing Facility or Board and Care - where ever they might call home. Hope to hear from you!
