About

About: Cornerstone Hospice and Palliative Care

Caring, compassionate people are needed to assist hospice patients and their loved ones. Do you have two to four hours a week to help a neighbor?

Cornerstone volunteers are a vital part of the entire organization, and play an active role in helping to provide the many special comfort and support services that distinguish hospice care. Ask the RSVP Program Coordinator about different opportunities to volunteer today!

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)

- Completion of a two-step tuberculosis screening ("TST") for volunteers who will work with patients (administered and covered by Cornerstone Hospice)

- Cornerstone Hospice has a wide variety of volunteer programs both direct and indirect.

VCI’s part in this opportunity is to provide volunteers with a (free!) comprehensive benefits package-CIMA Supplemental insurance, a Life Insurance benefit, free workshops and more! Call your RSVP Coordinator, Kelli Robertson, for more information: 407-298-2725, x110 / 407-617-9481.
