About

BJC Hospice is seeking compassionate, caring individuals to support terminally ill patients and their families at our new hospice house, Evelyn’s House in Creve Coeur. This is a great opportunity to do meaningful work that has a significant impact, all while setting your own schedule and choosing your own shifts.

Volunteers will be needed for:

  • Greeting visitors
  • Providing hospitality assistance
  • Companionship visits
  • Respite visits so that caregivers can take a break
  • 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)
  • Complimentary therapies including massage therapy, Healing Touch and Reiki
  • Serving on an "on-call" basis

Most shifts are 3 to 4 hours long. Volunteers will attend a general orientation and a house-specific orientation, and will 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.
