Kindred

Hospice provides compassionate care for individuals with life-limiting illnesses and their families so they may live as fully and comfortable as possible. One way Kindred Hospice achieves this is through our volunteer program. Volunteers provide important services to the patients/families we serve. Volunteers can be with our patients when our nurses, social workers, or chaplains can’t.

As a Kindred Hospice Volunteer, you will be given the choice of how much time you want to volunteer and how you want to share your time, and talents with our patients. Typical volunteer activities include:

- Engaging in patient hobbies, playing board games, playing cards or discussing current events

- Being a comforting and supportive presence

- Listening to patient's concerns

- Running errands or doing light housekeeping for the patient and family

- Encouraging patients to tell their life stories

- Providing time for the caregiver to take care of him or herself

Volunteers are never asked to do anything they’re not comfortable doing. You are provided with training to ensure they feel comfortable with their tasks. All volunteers must be at least 18 years of age to visit our patients, and submit to TB testing, drug testing, and a criminal background check.

There are many benefits to volunteering with Kindred Hospice. Volunteers can connect with our patients on a deep personal level. Volunteering lowers the risk of depression and stress, while boosting self-confidence. V olunteering can give you a sense of fulfillment and contribution to your community.

If this sounds like something that’s right for you, please contact Nina Dunn, at 636-528-2816 or nina.dunn@kindredhospicecare.com.
