Hospice Care of the Northwest has opportunities for you to bring companionship into the lives of others who really need it. This very special gift of hospice companionship will come back to you many times over! Come join our team!
Hospice Volunteers may do one or more of the following activities with people who need companionship:
- sit and read
- hold the person's hand
- pet certified therapy visits
- play music
- discuss shared interests (i.e. music, books, comics, sports, news, politics, etc)
- play cards
- sit vigil with persons without family or while the family takes a break
- write letters to loved ones for people
- polish fingernails
- sit and be a compassionate presence - sometimes just having someone who cares near eases loneliness
- and more. ...
Your visits to others on hospice will enhance the quality of their life, no matter their circumstance. Every volunteer has something special to contribute.
