About

Hours and days are flexible for a minimum commitment of 2-4 hours each week. Monday-Fridays between the hours of 10a-2p

What you'll be doing: We know that patients with limited support at home have a higher risk of being readmitted to the hospital and our goal is to have them heal at home. Volunteers have the opportunity to talk with candidates of the program and discuss with them the benefits. They answer questions patients may have. Conversations with patients are at the bed-side or via telephone once the patient has been discharged.

What we're looking for: Volunteers need to feel comfortable talking to patients and entering rooms. They need to have a calming demeanor and have good listening skills. Volunteers also need to verbally communicate well with staff, patients and guests. Computer skills for data entry is a plus.
