Imagine for a moment losing your loved one...feeing the loss and loneliness while trying to recreate a life without them. Now imagine losing your loved one to COVID-19. This is the reality of our world right now. You can help. Bereavement Volunteers help ease the pain and uncertainty with friendly phone calls. We've cared for our patients and families at end of life. We now care for those left to carry on.

Join our Bereavement Team in providing friendly, well-being phone calls to grieving families. Calls are assigned and made from the safety of your home and documented electronically.

Bereavement Volunteers are people helping people by offering friendship, a listening ear, a word of encouragement and resources as needed.

This is an excellent opportunity for mature volunteers searching for a meaningful way to help others.
Training and support are provided free of charge. Time is flexible based on individual availability.

Description

APEX Hospice and Palliative Care seeks to meet the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of patients and families who are facing a terminal illness. We focus on quality of life by providing comfort, company and active treatment of distressing symptoms, with the patient and their family as the focus of care. Services are provided by a team of professionals and volunteers who are physician directed and nurse coordinated. Comfort and coping resources are provided to the family for up to 13 months following the death of their loved one. "Family" is patient defined, and may include friends, significant others, life partners and relatives by blood or marriage. It is the expectation of APEX Hospice and Palliative Care that all employees and volunteers are strongly committed to the dignity and worth of each individual human being. Integrity and responsibility are expected conduct in all contacts with patients, families, other service providers, coworkers and the public.
