Volunteers play an essential role in the hospice philosophy, serving others and the community at large, one life at a time. What does a Grace Hospice Volunteer do? Well, what do you like to do? Because everyone has unique interests, talents, volunteer opportunities can be "tailored" to fit you, based on what you enjoy doing. Some of the areas of volunteer service include:
Visiting patients and loved ones, bereavement support, crafts, special events, administrative support, sharing the gift of music, hair and nail care, visit patients with their licensed therapy dog, etc.
All volunteers receive comprehensive training before an assignment is made. Volunteers must have their own transportation and pass a background check.
What is hospice? In the Middle Ages, the term "hospice" described a place where sick or weary travelers could find rest and comfort during a long journey. Today, Hospice refers to a very special type of care for the terminally ill. Hospices throughout the world provide specialized end-of-life care for the dying and support to their families. In a sense, today’s meaning of hospice is not much different than it was in early times - a place for the weary to rest before continuing their journey.
Grace Hospice is committed to providing quality end-of-life care to patients within a 50-mile radius of Tulsa. The hospice team supports patients and families through the work of physicians, nurses, home health aides, social workers, chaplains, and volunteers.
Why Volunteer? Hospice volunteers benefit from helping others while doing things they like to do. It is a privilege to be a friend to someone at the end of their life.
Volunteers learn about themselves as well as others. Besides, it feels good!
