One of our most invaluable resources is our volunteer program. Many of our volunteers were previously involved with hospice as family members.
How does a volunteer support hospice?
- Providing respite to family
- Socialization: reading, playing cards, sewing, simply being a friendly visitor to a patient
- Office and administrative support
- Offering their unique talents in any way toward supporting patients, families, and the community at-large
Compassionate Care Hospice’s volunteer programs are supervised by a dedicated Volunteer Coordinator, who will provide orientation to hospice, Compassionate Care and some of the healthcare regulations that are important to be aware of.PATIENT CARE VOLUNTEER
The Patient Care Volunteer provides patient care and support services that enhance the quality of life for patients and their families, such as grocery shopping, providing companionship, or prepare a snack as required.
PET THERAPY VOLUNTEER
The Pet Therapy Volunteer provides support services in compliance with hospice policies. The Pet-Therapy Certified pet is utilized therapeutically to implement the hospice plan of care, providing tactile stimulation, aid in relaxation, companionship, and other quality of life benefits to patients.
