About

Direct Patient Volunteers are always needed! If you want to be apart of making a difference in the community we serve just by assisting caregiver of hospice patients then this volunteer opportunity is for you. Caring for a loved one is a full time job and a lot times the caregiver does not have much time to theirself. We love to offer caregiver relief to these family members in need of a couple of hours to relax, run errands, or to simply just get out of the house. A direct patient volunteer is NOT allowed to do any hands on care. Volunteers are just there to simply sit with the patient for no more than 3 hours each visit while the caregiver can do whatever they need. We also offer friendly visits to patients which would mean just stopping in to check on and share a smile with the patient and or family. Some friendly visits might include going to play games with patients or enjoying their interest with them. Each Volunteer that is interested in becoming a Direct Patient Volunteer does have to complete a certified CPR course which we offer, have an up to date TB skin test, and take a drug screen. If you are interested in making a difference to families truly in need please contact Tara Blalock the Volunteer Coordinator with St Vincent's Hospice at 256-620-1363 or email tara.blalock@ahah.net TaraLBlalock42@gmail.com

Look forward to hearing from you!!
