HALCYON HOSPICE is seeking caring, compassionate individuals to provide companionship, a listening ear, a friendly face, art, music, or just relief for a family member for a few hours a month. Most of our volunteers came to give a blessing of their time to people seeking to live the remainder of their days in comfort and dignity; however, most agree that they were the ones who were blessed by the individuals they came to serve. All volunteers receive free training and, to safeguard patients and volunteers, background checks, drug testing and health screeing is required by the Department of Health.
A statement from our Executive in charge :
We do well to remember that we exist to meet the needs of those we are privileged to serve. When we do this without fail, with smiles on our faces, and with genuine compassion and concern for those we serve, we make a small payment against the debt of gratitude we owe to each community that we are privileged to be part of.
"To change the world we must be good to those who cannot repay us"
BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN OTHERS!
BE THE HANDS AND FEET!
PLEASE THINK ABOUT THIS NEED, WAIT ONE DAY, AND IF YOU ARE STILL FEELING CALLED TO HELP NEIGHBORS IN YOUR AREA, PLEASE CONTACT ME @864.THREE.TWO.FIVE.7452 if you are truly passionate about helping people.
IF you don't feel that you can commit to, AT THE LEAST, 2 HOURS a week, then, this is probably not the right opportunity for you. Many of our patients and caregivers really get excited about the prospect of a visitor or a small break and appreciate consistency.
