Volunteers provide caregiver relief, deliver supplies, provide emotional support, run errands, and provide socialization to terminally ill patients of all ages with six-month life expectancy. Time commitment is flexible, on schedule determined between volunteer and assigned patient. Volunteer application, criminal background check, personal references, personal interview, copies of auto insurance and driver's license, health assessment and TB test, and 18-hour hospice training required. Opportunities available throughout North Texas. VNA advises family members to wait a minimum of one year following the death of a loved one before volunteering as a hospice patient care volunteer.
