Many times Hospice patients live alone in their home. As their independent abilities fade away, they need a helping hand. Volunteers are needed to help these patients do the simple things that we often take for granted, such as, sweeping, vacuuming, dusting, etc. These volunteers are not asked to do strenuous or intense work, just simple light household duties around the home to be a helping hand. This volunteer will be trained to go into hospice patient’s homes and home like settings All required training is covered by Alacare including basic Alacare training, drug screen, background check, 2 step TB skin test and Hep. B vaccine. This volunteer will be mentored by the volunteer and community relations coordinator until comfortable and confident to be independent.
