Tidewell Hospice is in search of volunteers willing to provide visits to our patients in nursing homes and assisted living facilities. Some of these patients have few, if any visits. Visits can be brief, but are extremely meaningful to the patient and their family. Reading out loud, playing music, or just pushing a wheelchair outside or to an activity makes a huge difference. Opportunities throughout Manatee County.
Opportunities are generally flexible. Orientation and thorough training provided. Volunteers have access to ongoing education and an extensive volunteer recognition program.
Tidewell Hospice's mission is to provide the highest quality of care that embraces a comprehensive continuum of services for patients and families dealing with advanced illness
Tidewell is an independent, not-for-profit organization offering a home-based, total support system for patients and families dealing with a life-limiting illness, serving more than 1100 patients a day in Sarasota, Manatee, Charlotte and DeSoto counties. Volunteers are part of the Hospice Team that offers supportive medical, emotional, spiritual and volunteer services to patients and families who are facing difficulties at the end of life. Hospice volunteers are concerned individuals who willingly give of their time and talents to help Hospice families in many ways. They come from all walks of life, bonded by the mutual desire to serve the community.
