Be a Loving Presence in Sandy/East PDX -- Hospice Volunteer Training October 2022

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Signature Hospice

There are many hospice patients/families in Sandy in need of companionship. Spend 2-4 hours a week visiting a hospice patient in their home in Sandy and all SE locations. Companionship is many things -- listening to stories of a lifetime, sharing in activities of art, music, games, reading favorite books, poetry, or prayer, drinking tea or cocoa by a bright window, holding a hand in sacred silence. Many of our patients live in a senior community setting -- assisted living, memory care, skilled nursing, adult care home -- your volunteer companionship is even more important for those missing the close attention of family. Bring your love of art and crafts, musical talents, and open heart to enhance companionship visits.

Weekly visits are extremely flexible and we assign you to a patient/family closest to where you live. We serve patients and families living in your community in Sandy, Gresham, Troutdale, Estacada, Oregon City and all Portland metropolitan areas.

The next volunteer training, comprised of 3 sessions, is scheduled for October 1st, 2nd, & 8th. Signature follows all CDC, CMS, and State of Oregon covid 19 safety guidelines and regulations.
For an application packet and additional information contact Michele Fuchs, 503-924-8922, or michele.fuchs@sighch.com, and our website www.signaturehch.com.
