Avalon Hospice of Murfreesboro is looking for friendly visitors (a.k.a. Direct Patient Care volunteers) to provide non-medical support to the hospice patients and their families. They can provide caregiver relief, compassionate companionship, light housekeeping, light meal preparation, and/or assist with errands . All of these kind gestures will mean a lot to our hospice patients and their loved ones. Volunteers are usually assigned at least two patients and visit weekly or biweekly, either in the patient's home or at the facility they reside.
Background check, drug screening, & TB testing are all required; however, costs are covered by the company. The on-boarding process takes about two weeks from interview to the assignment of a volunteer's first patient as we also provide orientation/training. The long orientation process requires volunteers to remain with the company for least 6 months from date-of-hire.
If you are dependable, consistent, caring and have great communication skills, this opportunity is for you! No medical background necessary!
For more information regarding volunteering please contact the volunteer coordinator at 615-956-7436
I look forward to hearing from you!

We are committed to being a world class organization that provides the highest quality care to our patients. Our philosophy and culture are built around having highly experienced healthcare professionals, who are experts in pain management and in providing support and education to patients and families.
We recognize that a person is more than a physical body and we provide skilled professionals and volunteers to assist with not only the physical needs, but emotional and spiritual needs as well.
The services you will give as a Hospice volunteer will profoundly improve the quality of our patient’s lives. Friendly visits enable families to keep their loved ones at home, around the people they love, and the things they love. Assisting with errands helps a tired family cope with their many challenges and allows them time with their loved one. Simply holding a patient’s hand can ease their mind and comfort their spirit.
Volunteering at Avalon Hospice takes no advanced medical training or great commitment. It can be as simple as reading to, or spending time with a patient a few hours a week. It is small deeds of kindness that so profoundly enhance the lives of our patients and those who love them.
