Companionship
When you have so much to share, there’s so much you can do to help another — from something as simple as whispering a kind word to lending a helping hand to a family. There are many hospice volunteer opportunities with Good Shepherd Hospice that provide support in a variety of areas.

About

Good Shepherd Hospice is the only hospice provider in Polk, Highlands, or Hardee Counties with free standing hospice house facilities. These are not residential facilities. They provide a higher level of care to address pain & symptom management, end of life care, and other needs which might otherwise result in a hospital admission for the patient. Inside these comfortable, home-like settings, volunteers offer patient and family support & companionship, staff assistance, 11th hour vigil sitting, and a variety of tasks to ensure our patients and families feel at ease.

Volunteers receive comprehensive training before being matched with patients . No previous experience in the medical field is necessary. Days and times are flexible and every role is valued.
