About

Hospice patients in South County need your help! BJC Hospice is seeking compassionate, caring individuals to support terminally ill patients and their families. This is a great opportunity to do meaningful work that has a significant impact, all while setting your own schedule and choosing your own assignments.

Volunteers support patients and families through:

  • Companionship visits
  • Respite visits so that caregivers can take a break
  • Running errands
  • Light housekeeping
  • Handyman assistance
  • Taking patients on outings
  • Occasional transportation to appointments or to run errands
  • Spiritual care visits
  • Pet therapy
  • Visits to military veterans by military veterans (We Honor Veterans)
  • Creating life review projects (Lumina)
  • Support during a patient’s final hours (PasSage)
  • Craft projects for patients

Volunteers will attend a comprehensive orientation and receive ongoing support from the volunteer coordinator and hospice staff. You will not be providing hands-on care. Additional hospice education and opportunities to connect with other volunteers will take place throughout the year.

If you have a heart for helping patients at the end of life, call Volunteer Coordinator Mary Lindsley at 314-953-1671 or visit http://www.bjchospice.org/Volunteers.aspx. We’re looking forward to talking with you.
