Are you looking to make a major impact on someone's life? Volunteer to assist Hospice clients who have limited support and are struggling to achieve their goal of remaining in their homes and "aging in place". You can be paired with a client who needs extra support and would like to be "adopted" by a caring volunteer who will support the client in on-going needs and / or check in by phone to let the client know someone is thinking of them and checking on them. Light house keeping, assistance with meal prep, pet care, errand running, sitting with the client, providing supervision along with feedback to our nursing staff are all things that could ease the burden of these clients. Volunteers will be specially trained in what tasks they should provide and how to contact team members for anything outside those clear boundaries. These volunteers may also elect to be on standby per their availability to sit with a client who is having a rough day and needs a little extra supervision, support and TLC.
