Hospice Patient Companion

Volunteers are the HEART of Hospice. We are looking for kind caring individuals to provide companionship and be a "friendly visitor" to our patients in end of life care. Patients are in facilities and homes throughout the Sheboygan County area so there is likely a person in need conveniently close to you.

As a Hospice Visistor Volunteer you may:

  • Provide active listening and a caring presence
  • Read a book or listen to their favourite music
  • Play games or take walks as they are able
  • Participate in life review or just hear their stories
  • Be present while a caregiver rests
  • Remember special days
  • Laugh with them
  • Or just hold their hand while they rest

Volunteers typically visit with a patient once a week for 1 - 2 hours. Scheduling is very flexible. Training is provided so you can be confident in doing an excellent job as a Companion Volunteer. You will develop soft social skills such as active listening and empathetic companionship in a health care setting. This can reflect well on a resume.

If you are interested in doing something that will give back and be a heart expanding experience, call Robert Pamenter at 920 252-5066 or email Robert.Pamenter@Aurora.org
