Kaiser Permanente Hospice volunteers provide support to families and patients in the Portland Metro area. Your service will have profound impact at a time when a person is nearing the end of their life, when heartfelt one-on-one care is crucial.
Kaiser Hospice Volunteers assist family caregivers up to 4 hours/week who are caring for a terminally ill loved one in their home. Volunteers keep patients safe and comfortable while the family caregivers gets a break.
Volunteers may be asked to help with one or more of the following: spend time with patients and their families, offer support and encouragement; assist the patient/family in carrying out errands; assist Hospice families with light household tasks; assist patients with their memoirs, write letters, share a good book or movie. Arrange your own visit schedule in consultation with the hospice patient and family.
Call us today to ask questions. Next hospice volunteer training starts on June 22, 2018.
We'll work with your schedule.
