About

Cornerstone Hospice & Palliative Care is looking for people who want to volunteer as in home patient companion volunteers. As an in home patient care volunteer you will be able to interact with patients and families on a more personal level and will impact both patients and families in a positive way as they near their end of life. Families benefit from the intervention of the Volunteer who is willing to spend time with the family member which allows the loved ones to get shopping done without the worry of leaving their ill family member at home alone.

By being a hospice volunteer, you can gain great personal satisfaction from knowing that you have made an impact in another person’s life and in your community. Please join our team and make someone's day a little brighter!

Things to know before you apply:

In order to ensure the highest quality of care for patients and families, there are state and federal regulations that mandate special requirements for hospice volunteers. We ask the following from anyone interested in volunteering:

* Attendance at all training sessions mandated for the type of volunteer work you want to do

* Completion of an interview and service placement meeting

* A commitment to volunteer for at least one year

* Completion of a fingerprint background check (scheduled and covered by Cornerstone Hospice)
