Medi Home Hospice is currently looking for "11th Hour Volunteers" also known as "Vigil Volunteers" to assist in supporting patients during their final hours of the actively dying stage. Our hope would be that No One Dies Alone. Volunteers will help in creating peaceful surroundings, sharing in silence with patient and family, offering a calm and peaceful presence or possibly being an active listener if that is needed. You could play soft music or read something inspirational. It is also important to provide relief to caregivers or family members or to listen to family share stories aout their loved one and lastly you can help the family say good-bye to their loved one. Specialized training and ongoing support are provided by our Interdisciplinary team of nurses, social worker and chaplain.
If you would be interested in participating in this very special aspect of hospice, please contact me and we can discuss the necessary training needed for this position.
Please share this information with your family and friends in the event that someone you know might be interested in helping. Thank you.
