Encompass Hospice of Nashville offers ongoing opportunities to help others live their best lives even at the end of life. Be it spending time with a patient, or helping organize elements of care behind the scenes, Encompass Hospice welcomes all those who want to join with us in providing a Better Way to Care. While assisting patients & their familiies is a part of that, we also have some "behind-the-scenes" ways you can help.
Helping with Administrative Support:
- Create Welcome Packets: Help assemble and organize the variety of information resources/documents needed to help begin providing care.
- Craft Tokens of Remembrance: In hospice, we check in, over the course of the year-plus following a death, with the key folks that helped support a person during their end of life journey. One way we do this, is by offering each of them tokens of remembrance as a way to recognize and commemorate their loss. Use your artistic talents to help make something beautiful for a person healing from hurt (and we have a bit of a butterfly theme, so be prepared to see a few!).
- Send a helpful word: Those who are closest to a patient receive ongoing support with notes and newsletters. Help prepare these items for mailing by putting together the appropriate materials, addressing, and affixing postage to these important letters.
To help Encompass Hospice help others in these ways, please click "Express Interest" below. Our volunteer coordinator will contact you to arrange a time to discuss how your "hospice heart" and talents might be best used to help support our patients and their communities of care.
At Encompass Hospice, we strive to meet people where they are, tend to their hopes & hurts, and provide support as they move to the end of life's journey.
