Volunteers needed at Gentiva Hospice. We are looking for dedicated and caring people to spend time with our patients that are facing the end of life. Just a smile and a simple touch of the hand can mean everything to a lonely patient that has been sick for a while and unable to get out.
Being a volunteer at Gentiva can be a satisfying and rewarding experience. Volunteers can help a patient that is terminally ill make the very best of the time he or she has left through companionship and socialization. Volunteers can also provide caregiver relief to the families. Your time and talent can make a tremendous impact on the patient and their family.
A short training and a two step tb shot are required for all patient volunteers. Our coverage area is Douglas, Paulding, Haralson, Cobb, Carroll, and parts of Fulton County. Volunteers can volunteer near their home. All training and shots are given at the Douglasville office.
We are also interested in volunteers for Pet therapy, Music therapy and Administrative duties.
* Minimum age requirement for Volunteers visiting with patients is 18 or older.
