About

A Hospice Companion Volunteer is someone who is a listener, supporter and kindhearted friend to patients as they visit them in their homes, in the hospital, or in a nursing home. On these visits, he/she will read, play games, serve prepared meals, and help the patient’s family by making their loved one safe and comfortable while they receive a short respite. The volunteer will fill out reports on patient visits. Most visits are for 2 hours, once a week when a volunteer is assigned a patient. Volunteers receive an activity guide and appropriate report sheets to describe each visit. The volunteer will also be required to fill out a monthly time report. Required training will be provided.
