ORGANIZATION: MetroWest Hospice an Amedisys Co

  • 12 people are interested

Have you ever thought about being a comfort to someone in need? Do you ever wish you could make a huge difference in someone’s life? Could you bring comfort and compassion to someone who needs it? If you answered yes to any of these questions, being a hospice volunteer might be for you.

Offer the gift of your presence to someone with a life-limiting illness.

MetroWest Hospice volunteers help create an environment of comfort, compassion and dignity for our patients and their families. Volunteers enjoy listening to patient's stories, reading aloud, watching movies together, holding hands, sharing music or simply sitting.

I am currently looking for volunteers in the Marlborough and surrounding areas.

Free hospice volunteer training along with a certificate of completion and a hospice volunteer ID badge are included.

Please take this journey with me as I make this very easy and fun.

Thank you for your consideration,

Victoria McBrine
Volunteer Coordinator

About MetroWest Hospice an Amedisys Co

Location:

200 Nickerson Rd. Suite 110, Marlborough, MA 01752, US

Mission Statement

We honor those we serve with compassionate hospice and personal care services that apply the highest quality clinical practices toward allowing our patients to maintain a sense of independence, quality of life and dignity.

Description

Our Volunteers work side-by-side with the professional staff to provide patient and family support. As a friend who pledges to be with them through the uncertainties of the weeks ahead, hospice volunteers offer patients and families a listening ear, a hand to hold, and the presence of a caring heart. Services offered by the hospice volunteers are as varied as the needs of the patients and families. All hospice volunteers receive specialized training by me before assignment to patients and families. There is no area of hospice where the expertise and enthusiasm of the volunteer is not a valuable asset.
