Kindred Hospice not only cares for our patients, but offers support for their families as well. Volunteer visit with our patients as you play cards, look at pictures, listen to music or listen to old stories. Also, volunteers meet with family members or caregivers providing support, friendship and companionship, this may be a cup of coffee talk on current events, chat and visit. As a volunteer for Kindred, you can make a difference in the lives of the people we serve. After completing our volunteer training course, you will visit patients in their homes (be that an assisted living facility, skilled nursing facility or a free standing house), providing companionship and friendly visits. Volunteers are assigned to visit patients that live in their neighborhood so the burden of travel is minimal. In most situations, visiting hours are flexible and you will be able to visit patients on your schedule, when it is most convenient for you. Visitor volunteers do NOT perform any medical or personal cares and do not transfer patients, administer any medicines, take patients to the bathroom, etc. Your job is just to visit as a friendly neighbor would!
