When it comes to volunteering for Hospice, there are essentially two types of volunteers.
The first are those who interact directly with patients. The volunteer goes to a patient's residence, usually a home, assisted living facility or a nursing home, and visits with the patients and their caregivers. What you do with that time together is completely up to you - from simply sitting with them, making conversation, telling stories, or even showcasing a talent like performing music or acting.
The other type are those who provide assistance around the office, mainly through bereavement. They work with our chaplain to make sure families and caregivers are coping with the passing of a loved one by sending letters, making phone calls, and assisting in memorial services.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
