How does a volunteer support hospice?
- Providing respite to family
- Socialization: reading, playing cards, sewing, simply being a friendly visitor to a patient
- Office and administrative support
- Offering their unique talents in any way toward supporting patients, families, and the community at-large
Compassionate Care Hospice’s volunteer programs are supervised by a dedicated Volunteer Coordinator, who will provide orientation to hospice, Compassionate Care and some of the healthcare regulations that are important to be aware of.
Patients - Companionship, reading, taking walks, letter writing, listening to music, other activities.
Families - Assist with shopping and other errands, supporting family through visits and respite.
Staff - Office support, including copying, filing, to support hospice staff while they provide care.
Bereavement - Working closely with bereavement staff, assisting with support groups and mailings.
Professionals - Providing licensed professional care, such as massage therapy or beautician services.
Giving that gives back:
Personally gratifying to assist those in need at a critical point in their lives.
Helping those with limited life expectancy is not about dying but about living.
