Facilities and Homes throughout Sheboygan Co.Sheboygan, WI53081
Volunteers are the HEART of Hospice. We are looking for kind caring individuals to provide companionship to our patients in end of life care. Patients are in facilities and homes throughout the Sheboygan County area so there is likely a patient 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
