Did you know that the word "companion" is not only a noun, but also a verb? "Companion" means "to accompany." To be a companion volunteer is not only to be a friend and companion, but it also means to accompany someone on a journey. In the case of being a hospice companion volunteer, you are one who accompanies another on their journey at the end of life. This is not only a ministry to the dying, but also one of the most sacred journeys that you will ever take with another person.
Many of us are called to such a ministry. When asked why we do this, we are often unsure of what the answer is other than that it is something that we must do. If this sounds like you, then perhaps you would like to learn more about becoming a hospice volunteer.
Adventist Health Hospice is currently looking for people who feel called to serve in this capacity. There are many opportunities available. Give us a call today at 503-251-6192 and ask for the Volunteer Coordinator if this feels like an opportunity you would like to explore.
