PruittHealth Hospice volunteers are the heart and essence of hospice. Volunteers are a "gift" to our agency, the patients as well as the family. They work hand-in-hand with the members of the hospice team to provide a high quality end-of-life experience to our patients and families. Volunteers provide unique services, such as visiting with patients and families, reading, playing music, and serving as a companion.
If you have a few hours each month to give and the desire to make a difference in the life of another, you could be a PruittHealth Hospice Volunteer. As a hospice volunteer you will be an essential part of our caring team. Know that the "gift" you have shared will add value to the life that you have touched.
You may serve in several ways:
You can be a patient volunteer which performs activities designed to help the patient know that he or she is not alone, such as playing cards, reading a newspaper, writing letters, Serving as a companion, etc.
You can be a office (administrative) volunteer which assist the office manager in day-to-day operations, such as typing up daily patient lists, filing, making phone calls, answering the telephone, etc.
Finally, you could serve as a Bereavement Volunteer which provided emotional support after the death of a loved one. Extra training is provided to the bereavement volunteer and it is often a natural extension of the patient volunteer.
