No one should die alone. We are looking for compassionate volunteers to sit with patients in their last days of life. The goal of the volunteer is to offer companionship for the patient. The service is provided as needed in shifts. Volunteers will be called when there is a need- you get to decide if you are available or not. Volunteers will be provided specialized training for this role.
The main objective is for the patient to be comfortable and you to provide non-medical support up until the last moments. The ideal person will possess good communication skills, good judgement regarding the death and dying process and issues related to death, be able to work independently- while keeping the team updated, and be empathetic and compassionate with a good attitude.
We will pay for a background check, TB tests, provide training and we reimburse mileage reimbursement- parking is free.
Our mission is to provide premium comfort care to patients, families and caregivers through an interdisciplinary team approach that understands, respects and meets individual needs. Our vision is to become the leading provider of hospice care. We strive to provide our patients, families and caregivers with the highest level of satisfaction through our strong clinical outcomes and innovative approach by maintaining our core values of devotion, honesty, dignity and respect.
Grane Hospice serves terminally ill patients at the end of their life. We serve patients throughout Southwest PA including Allegheny, Armstrong, Beaver, Butler, Indiana, Washington and Westmoreland counties. Our goal is to treat the patient with dignity and respect while making them comfortable. We have a strong team that consists of Grane Hospice support staff and volunteers.
Volunteers are an important part of the team as we provide special physical, emotional, spiritual, and practical needs to both the patient and family. Part of the goal is to provide comfort and dignity while making the patients comfortable. This is achieved in many different ways, some are hands on and some are in the comfort of your home or our office. Put your special skills and talents to use by helping someone in your community on the end their life journey.
