Jewish Social Service Agency (JSSA)

  • 23 people are interested

Hospice Volunteers play an important role as part of JSSA Hospice’s interdisciplinary team by supporting a patient and their family at end of life. Whether this is done remotely or in person, hospice volunteers enhance the experience of patients and families with their compassion and supportive presence. They are vital in observing and noting signs of physical and emotional change in patients that the nursing, social work or spiritual care coordinator should note.

They provide tuck-in and companion calls, and in person visits from initial admission to our service, to the last days and hours of life by sitting with patients and families to ensure they are never alone.

Volunteers bring comfort, respite, and companionship at a time when compassionate support is critically needed.

We are looking for all hospice volunteers, but are in need of Spanish and Russian-speaking hospice volunteers in particular. We serve a very diverse population of patients and their familes, in all areas of Montgomery County, and we look forward to hearing from you! Please ask our Volunteer Coordinator team about the many ways we are keeping our hospice volunteers happy, healthy and safe during COVID!
