Hospice isn't about dying -- it's about living the remainder of life with quality and dignity. Give the gift of your heartfelt loving kindness by providing a friendly, smiling face to our patients and their families.

A Hospice volunteer provides companionship a few hours per week to talk, listen, share simple activities with patients, or to provide a peaceful presence. Our patients reside in private homes, nursing homes and assisted-living facilities throughout Delaware County. In everything we do, we practice CDC guidelines to make sure that we keep our volunteers and patients/families safe.

Individualized training is provided free of charge. In keeping with Medicare requirements, background and medical checks are part of the training process. Ongoing training and support is available and provided to all of our volunteers.

Join our team of amazing individuals to experience the wonderful gifts that Hospice offers. It's a life affirming role that you'll love!

About Crozer Keystone Hospice

Location:

200 W Sproul Road, Springfield, PA 19064, US

Mission Statement

The volunteer department enhances the care of the communities we serve. These volunteers are important members of an interdisciplinary team working to "de-institutionalize" the dying experience and provide a more humane system of care for the dying and their families. We hope to have volunteers in all areas of our field of practice, providing support to our patients, their families and to our interdisciplinary team as well.

Description

  • Support for patients. This can include visiting, reading, taking walks, writing letters, bringing in music, supervising visits with pets, even massage therapy for volunteers with the necessary skills.
  • Respite and support for family members. Volunteers can assist with shopping or allow family caregivers the opportunity to take care of necessary errands and get some time away from the house. Family members also appreciate a visit from a compassionate friend who understands what they are going through.
  • Bereavement support programs. Hospice volunteers can work closely with the hospice’s professional bereavement staff in duties that range from assisting as a support group facilitator to serving refreshments and helping with mailings to clients and families.
  • Fund-raising and administrative work. A volunteer with clerical skills can serve a hospice by helping in the office with simple administrative duties. Fundraising responsibilities can range from preparing mailings or thank you letters to organizing fundraising events and contacting possible donors.
