West Side Hospice Volunteer Needed
12 people are interested
Grace Hospice is in need of compassionate people to visit with their homebound hospice patients. Hospice care provides increased services through a person's journey through terminal illness. Volunteers are the heart of the team and provide the compassionate listening and companionship that many shut-ins need. All training is provided. All different skill sets are needed too. Can you read out loud, can you talk to another person? Believe it or not these skills are in demand and much appreciated by many older adults who are unable to get out of their homes. You can bring the world to them. We ask that you volunteer once a week for at least an hour. The times and days of the week are completely up to you and your schedule. If you are interested, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
