About Kindred Hospice (formerly Gentiva Hospice)

Location:

210 South Carancahua Street, Suite 200, Corpus Christi, TX 78401, US

Mission Statement

To make a difference in the lives of our patients and families by working hand in hand throughout their journey.

Description

By volunteering for only a few hours or days a month, you can make a difference in the lives of our patients and their families. Volunteers can choose to work directly with our patients and families, in administrative activities at Kindred offices or in community functions, such as health fairs, memorial services or bereavement assistance meetings.

Our volunteers provide companionship and support for patients by reading to them or writing letters for them. They may run small errands or give caregivers a brief respite by staying with the patient. Others may use their talents or help patients with arts and craft projects.

All volunteers receive special training and are under the direction of a staff member responsible for Kindred's volunteer program.
