Kaiser Permanente Hospice volunteers provide support to families and patients in Vancouver, WA and the Clark County area. Your service will have profound impact at a time when a person is nearing the end of their life, a time when heartfelt one-on-one care is crucial.
Kaiser Hospice Volunteers provide up to 4 hours per week for a minimum of one year. Volunteer service is often arranged to support a terminally ill patient's family caregiver. Volunteers keep the patients safe and comfortable while the family caregivers get 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 active listening; 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 watch a movie. As a volunteer you would arrange your own visit schedule in consultation with the hospice patient and family.
