Become a Compassionate Care Hospice Volunteer!
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.
Contribute support through the following:
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.
Training is provided by a Liscensed Master of Social Work (LMSW) and will count toward any volunteer or community service hours needed. Earn your hours in the office providing clerical support or out in the field providing our patients with companionship and support. Contact today!
