Kaiser Permanente Hospice volunteers provide support to families and patients in the Gresham, Sandy, or Estacada area. Your service will have a profound impact at a time with 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 in the patient's home, while the family caregiver takes a break.
Volunteers may be asked to help with one or more of the following: spend time with patients and their families, offering 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.
Call us today to ask questions. Next hospice volunteer training starts Friday June 19th and Friday June 26th, from 9am-4:30pm in Clackamas.
