Halcyon Hospice, serves patients and families in Columbia and the surrounding area. Hospice Volunteers work in conjunction with other members of the hospice team. They are under supervision of the Volunteer Coordinator who is a support, advocate and resource for the volunteer. We view the volunteer's most important role to be that of a loving, supportive presence. Volunteers become an essential part of the patients' families' emotional, social, and physical well-being durning the last stage of life.
As a volunteer you can choose those areas that best fit your needs and schedule.
Patient care, which includes: Companionship, shopping, respite for caregiver, preparing light meals, and light housekeeping when appropriate and agreeable to the volunteer.
Administrative, which includes: Answering phones in our office, filing, typing, and assembling mail.
Bereavement, which includes: Follow up with families after the death through visits, phone calls, or cards. Assist Bereavement Coordinator with grief support group, memorial service,etc. Visit family at the funeral home/attend funeral.
We'll work with your schedule.
