Volunteer Phone Buddies connect with family caregivers, who have a loved one admitted to our Hospice Care, on a weekly basis to give them an opportunity to visit, socialize, or simply chat with a new friend on the other end of the phone. Phone Buddies meet a unique need for 24/7 family caregivers who may not get the chance to "visit" outside the home often, and give them a sense of support. Phone Buddies can also be paired with a patient who is in need of some companionship and support through phone conversations. Think of this as a phone version of a pen pal! This simple act brightens a patient's day and gives them a sense of companionship and support from someone outside their world of Hospice. These phone calls are preferred to be completed in the office, but can also be completed in the comfort of your own home! If you have a desire to help, we have a place for you! For additional information, or to schedule an informal, no commitment Introduction to Volunteering With Emerald Coast Hospice, call Gina Marshall at 850-995-4664 or email at Gina.Marshall@emeraldcoasthospice.com* Volunteers take proper precautions in patient care regarding COVID-19, just as employees do.
