The Sisters of the Poor have an aging group of Seniors. They receive individualized nursing care in a holistic environment and home-like setting within the St. Clare Convent. This is not regulated healthcare with any mandates from Medicare therefore it is more relaxed and feels like a home setting. It is staffed with dedicated employees to provide optimal care to the sisters. We are looking for Volunteer Companions to sit with the Sisters to provide extra support and socialization. The companion position for Franciscan Sisters requires a person to have a good bedside manner, good verbal communication, active listening skills and have a sense of one's person's physical limitations. The role of a companion to a Franciscan Sister of the Poor includes companionship, talking, listening, life review, reminiscing as well as playing any games, assisting with hobbies or any other special interests, assisting with writing and reading letters.
