An important way to help make a difference in your community is through volunteer service. Hospice began as a grassroots, volunteer-driven movement in the 1970s to care more compassionately for people at life’s end.
As a New Beginning Hospice volunteer, you may spend time with patients to enable family members to take a break from caregiving, serve as a listening ear to patients and family members, offer companionship, reading or writing a letter. Volunteers may run errands, walk a dog, or other common tasks, taking pressure off of caregivers and loved ones.
Whatever you're good at--from listening, to playing a musical instrument, to painting nails, to reading aloud--you can make a difference in the lives of hospice patients who are living with a life-limiting illness. Any time spent caring for a patient enhances the quality of life for that patient and their family members.
Training is provided, all you need is time and a compassionate heart!
People often ask hospice volunteers "Isn't it depressing"? Most volunteers will tell you that "It’s the most rewarding thing they’ve ever done."
