VIGIL HOSPICE VOLUNTEER
A vigil is when you stay alert to guard something, as when you keep vigil over your hen house when the foxes are out. A vigil can also be solemn, as when a candlelight vigil is held for victims of a tragedy. Vigilcomes from the Latin word for "awake," and all its meanings include the idea of watchfulness. If you're attending a vigil or keeping vigil, you shouldn't expect to take a nap. The vigil is an apt kind of demonstration for peace movements, as it's calm, non-violent, and solemn, with participants standing quietly - sometimes holding candles.
I need a vigil team. 10 - 15 people that can be trained in to hold space at the bedside of the dying. You will be called when the patient is in the last 48 hours of life and stay beside them for 2-3 hours then being replaced by the next vigil volunteer. You are always the boss! If the time is inconvienient or only one hour instead of 3 we will adjust. This is such a great service to the patient and the family. This is also a great way to help out if you don't want a commitment to a weekly patient visit.
Questions please don't hesitate to call (714) 489-3337.
