We are actively seeking caring and compassionate individuals to volunteer with us! As a direct patient care volunteer, you will truly make a difference in the lives of our patients and families. Help make an impact by visiting patient in their homes as well as in facilities. Pay a friendly visit, accompany a patient to a social event, or read aloud. Reminisce with patients and listen as they share their memories and life stories. Share your talents with patients through singing, playing an instrument, or creating art with a patient. This opportunity is great for individuals looking to one day work in health care (e.g., pre-med, nursing, social work, and psychology majors). It is also a great opportunity for those looking to give back to the community.
Here's what one of our direct patient care volunteers has to say about volunteering with Capital Hospice & Palliative Care: "I chose Capital Hospice because I felt that as someone interested in a career in medicine I need to expose myself to all levels of medicines and stages of care. I've felt I've been able to gain a wholesome understanding of medical care with hospice combined with my ER work, and specialty surgeon shadowing. Furthermore it has highlighted for me the need to show love and affection to our family members constantly and always be grateful for their presence in our lives. It's an unfortunate thing when your loved one stops being able to share memories with you, they are alive but not fully present." - Rajko V.
