Use your healing hands to comfort those in their time of need.
We are seeking certified massage therapists to work directly with hospice patients and their families.
Massage Therapy can help relieve pain and enhance relaxation. It can provide many physical, sensory, and mental benefits during end of life care.
The massage therapist will address the areas that would bring the client the most relief. It is unlikely that the therapist would be working with the entire body unless it is easy and comfortable for the client. Sessions are usually short depending on the receptivity of the client.
Location: Our patients are at homes, nursing homes, assisted living facilities or personal care homes around Chester and Delaware Counties. However, volunteers usually do not travel outside a 10 mile radius from their home.
Training and continuous education in end-of-life issues is available to all volunteers. Hospice volunteers set their own schedules.
Please contact us if you're interested in volunteering as a massage therapist. Requirements: Certified/18+ years of age
