Enrich your life...volunteer! Aspirus volunteers are men and women ages 14 and older, each with unique gifts and talents. Aspirus offers a variety of volunteer opportunities to fit anyone's interest and schedule - from opportunities at the hospital, to visiting directly with hospice patients and their families in the Portage County area, to other special projects. As a volunteer, you will have the opportunity to meet new and interesting people, make a difference in the lives of our patients and families, develop friendships, cultivate leadership skills, and build self-esteem while making a positive impact in your community.

Opportunities Include:

  • Bereavement Support:
    Provide support to family members in the first year after a patient’s death. Volunteers make regular phone or mail contact with family members following the death of a loved one from the comfort of their home. Volunteers work with the Bereavement Coordinator who provides direction, guidance, and support for the volunteers.
  • Hospice House (Teen Eligible):
    Volunteers help staff members at Hospice House by visiting with patients, making meals, gardening, cleaning, stocking cabinets, etc. More duties are assigned as needed.
  • Patient/Family Support (Home Care):
    Volunteers provide emotional support to patients and their families. Volunteers can visit with patients in their homes or in community residences providing caregivers a short respite from daily living responsibilities and a comforting presence.

Mission Statement

Aspirus Comfort Care and Hospice Services' mission is to provide and ensure meaningful and compassionate comfort (palliative) and end-of-life care. This will be accomplished by competent, financially responsible, caring staff and volunteers who work collaboratively with other providers.

Description

Aspirus Comfort Care and Hospice Services offers hospice, palliative and grief care. When active treatment is no longer the focus of care for an illness, hospice care concentrates on relieving symptoms and supporting patients and their families. Hospice patients generally have a life expectancy measured in months rather than years.
