Gentiva Hospice of Seattle Volunteers make an incredible difference and impact lives by being an essential part of our interdisciplinary team, bringing support to our patients and families during time of need.

About

Make a difference and help to improve someone's quality of life by providing compassionate presence and care to Kindred Hospice patients and their families in East Seattle. Volunteers are an essential part of our dynamic interdisciplinary team (of nurses, doctors, spiritual care providers, social workers and home health aides). Our Patient Care Hospice volunteers help to provide support and comfort to our hospice patients and families, by visiting them during a time of need.

Kindred Hospice of Seattle Volunteers may serve in a multitude of ways, including offering patient companionship (such as reading a book, engaging in conversation, actively listening by the bedside, playing card games, singing or holding someone's hand). Volunteers may also provide caregiver/family respite, or light household work, running errands or engaging in arts/crafts activity. Volunteers may also assist with special events such as memorial services and veteran pinning ceremonies for our hospice patients and families. Kindred Hospice of Seattle volunteers drive to visit and offer support to hospice patients and families.

We provide free extensive traning and ongoing education and support for our volunteers. We value and nurture our volunteers as essential members of our interdisciplinary team. We seek a diverse volunteer team that reflects our multicultural community. Volunteer trainings occur in our office in Northgate. Hospice volunteers with valid driver's license and car, are needed to visit patients and their families on the Eastside (Issaquah, Bellevue, Redmond, Kirkland, Sammamish, etc).

Qualified candidates must be at least 18 years old, have a current driver's license, pass a background check, fingerprinting and TB test.
