Hospice volunteers have a few characteristics in common: compassion, heart and the desire to give back. Your support for patients and families facing end-of-life issues can be tailored to suit you in most cases. Volunteer as little or as much as you wish. There is a "no hands-on" patient care policy for our volunteers, who provide companionship and support to patients and their families.
Volunteers can provide brief respite support in the day for the family caregiver, read to the patient, write letters, put together a scrapbook, help write a memoir, or provide a smile and a listening, compassionate ear.
Valor HospiceCare also prides itself on the special interactions we have with our veteran patients! We welcome JROTC and veteran volunteers alike to help with our veteran patient pinning ceremonies and companionship opportunities.
With Covid-19 being a prevalent issue in today's world, volunteers can also retrieve and deliver groceries and make phone calls to patients.
If you are certified to provide pet therapy, music therapy, or art therapy, that is wonderful! Opportunities to give back in both patient and non-patient settings.
