Volunteers serve as members of the hospice team by sharing their skills and interest with our patients and their families. This may involve just sitting and listening to a patient in his/her home or in an assisted living facility. It may involve singing or playing music for a patient, doing a craft, reading scripture, a story or book, or just being a friend to someone who cannot get out to see others. It may involve organizing or cleaning a home. It may be just sitting with a patient that cannot be left alone so that a family member can go to the grocery store. What you do as a volunteer is so very important to these patients and their families.
Volunteers will not be asked to do anything that they are uncomfortable doing. Our volunteer coordinator will work with you to accomodate your schedule. You communicate when you are available and what you are comfortable doing. We look for win/win situations... happy volunteers and therefore happy patients!
We have a volunteer program which is supervised by our dedicated Volunteer Coordinator. Many people want to give back and help others. Volunteers help in many ways.
