About

Hair Dresser Volunteers - AseraCare Hospice seeks caring, compassionate individuals who would be willing to spend a few hours a month (as needed)shampooing, cutting, trimming, and styling the hair of our terminally ill patients. Hair Dresser Volunteers spend sacred time with our patients and provide special care and attention, allowing our patients to feel better and special. Volunteers play an important role in providing social support and decreasing isolation that can so often occur for the terminally ill.

Volunteers are provided free training, a training certificate, and can work flexible hours that suit their individual schedules. Volunteer training blends ancient wisdom with contemporary practices.

Skills:

  • Interpersonal Skills: Volunteers need to be able to fit into any mode: engage in conversations from the superficial to the spiritually profound, depending on the day. Also need to be comfortable with silence.

Requirements:

  • Be able to provide own transportation.

  • Complete approximately 6-8 hours of on-line training, and afterwards attend 8-hours orientation OR complete the Volunteer Training (offered on a quarterly basis) at the York office.

  • Complete background check (free)

  • Drug Test (free)

  • Tuberculosis tests (free)

  • We request a nine month commitment, at the least, to our volunteer program.
