Volunteer training classes may be virtual, in-person, or a mix depending on the individual need.
For volunteers who plan to visit patients, some facilities are beginning to welcome volunteers again.
Please call us to learn about specific roles and the safety precautions that are being made.
Trained Hospice Volunteers are matched with hospice patients who are socially isolated. Visits typically last an hour, but may be more or less, given the circumstances. Hospice Volunteers provide a personal, continuous one-to-one relationship with hospice patients at their residence.
- Provide support through friendship
- Arrange in advance for a suitable time to visit
- Are punctual and dependable for each visit
- Give brief volunteer reports to the Hospice Volunteer Coordinator
- Maintain confidentiality of patient information
- Report promptly any problems or concerns to the Hospice Volunteer Coordinator
Volunteers must complete a volunteer application, submit to a routine background check, interview with the volunteer coordinator and complete certain medical requirements such as 2-step Tuberculin Skin Test.
Volunteers must complete orientation and a thorough training program that covers aspects of hospice care such as spiritual, physical, emotional, bereavement and psychosocial services.
Our Volunteer Coordinator works with each new volunteer to help determine the best fit to assure that patient needs are met and the volunteer has a satisfying and rewarding experience.
Volunteers interested in working in certain specialized areas like bereavement and vigil support receive additional training. Ongoing educational opportunities also are available to all hospice volunteers throughout the year.Contact us
If you have a sincere desire to help, consider becoming a hospice volunteer. That special touch, those kind words and even the smallest act of caring can be so rewarding.
