Volunteer at the Cottage or with Roper Home Hospice
Roper Hospice is recruiting volunteers for our new inpatient Cottage and to provide support to patients and their loved ones in their homes. Our volunteers are an important part of a family's hospice experience and are beloved members of the hospice team. Volunteers must be good listeners and be able to give four hours a week.
Volunteer with an Award-Winning Nonprofit
Roper Hospice is part of the Roper St. Francis Medical System, and is the only hospice in the Tri-County associated with a hospital. Roper Hospice Cottage is the only inpatient hospice facility in the area. We are a nonprofit and provide hospice care to all. Our bottom line is patient care and we are committed to compassion and excellence.
Roper Hospice's Next Volunteer Training is March 21, 22, and 23
Our next hospice volunteer training, which consists of 20 hours of instruction at no cost to you, will take place over three days at Roper Hospital in downtown Charleston: Thursday, March 21 from 5:30pm to 9:30pm; Friday, March 22 from 8:30am to 5:00pm; and Saturday, March 23 from 8:30am to 5:00pm. Attendance at all three days is required.
During the training you will have the opportunity to meet and interact with other volunteers, explore your own experiences with death, loss, and grief, and hear from hospice professionals. You will learn about our team approach, the medical perspective of hospice, and how to have good self-care and prevent burnout. Communication skills and healthy boundaries will be an important focus.
The first step toward becoming a Roper Hospice volunteer is a phone interview, followed by an in-person interview. A background check and health check will follow. A urine drug screen, TB test, and flu shot are required to volunteer. Volunteers must be 18 years of age. We regret we are unable to accommodate community service hours. Please call 843-402-3118 to begin this process. I look forward to hearing from you!
