Capital Caring Health- Alexandria

Covid- 19 has caused isolation for all of us. Those especially at risk are our hospice patients and their families. We are in need of volunteers to become hospice volunteers who are willing to make phone call "visits" to patients and their families. A simple check in of a friendly voice makes all the difference in the world. Perhaps read a short story over the phone or read some jokes.

These calls will connect the volunteer to patients/families in need of a friend.

Be a compassionate phone visitor to a person with a life-limiting illness. Capital Caring Health needs dedicated volunteers to provide companionship and socialization to hospice patients by phone during Covid 19 and hopefully volunteers will want to continue in person visits once safety measures have been established.

Must be a good listener. May involve chatting, hearing life stories, reading to a patient.

Volunteers needed any day of the week. Volunteer will be asked to provide about 1- 2 hours a week.

Orientation and ongoing support provided. Come join a team of supportive professionals who value our volunteers tremendously. You will find a home here with the Alexandria Capital Caring Health Team.

Please contact Katherine Knoble at kknoble@capitalcaring.org or 703-333-6958 or 703-309-0289. Thank you.
