AccentCare is looking for dedicated and compassionate Vigil Volunteers to be with patients and families during the dying process. A Vigil Volunteer is a present, compassionate listener, They are an invited guest into a most sacred and personal transition. They understand that this transition is physical and spiritual and that each situation or vigil is unique. Vigil Volunteers go to patients when the time of death is near. Their primary concern is the comfort of the patient.

Vigil Volunteers are a highly valued and vital part of our organization. You can use your gifts to impact someone in their last stage of life in many ways, and we will make sure you are well-trained, equipped, and supported.

Vigil Volunteers will typically work in the background, nurturing as needed. The dying patient may or may not know the Vigil Volunteer is there...and yet...there she is...a constant observer, someone to comfort, to calm, and to care.

"Fixers" and "Do-ers" will struggle with Vigil as so much of it is simply "Being". Vigil Volunteering is a beautiful experience. You don’t have to do or be anything special... just be there. Embrace your compassionate self and know that this is always our patient’s journey into death, but it is also your journey in experience.

Vigil volunteers serve our patients and families in either the inpatient unit or the patient's home residence within the greater Atlanta area counties: Barrow, Cherokee, Clayton, Cobb, Dawson, Dekalb, Forsyth, North Fulton, Gwinnett and Hall

About AccentCare Hospice and Palliative Care

Location:

11675 Great Oak Way, Suite 310, Alpharetta, GA 30022, US

Mission Statement

Reimaging care, together to transform healthcare -- and our patients' lives -- for the better.

Description

Hospice volunteers both give and receive many benefits from joining our program.

Volunteers set their own levels of commitment and travel based on their available time and the needs of our patients. Volunteers serve our adult patients of all ages who live within the metro Atlanta area.

Volunteer selection begins with an application and interview where potential volunteers may express their personal goals, availability, interests, and talents.

Volunteers are carefully screened through a criminal background check, motor vehicle report, and personal references.

Direct Care Volunteers help by providing comfort, support, care, and compassion to our patients and their family members, and are required to participate in initial hospice volunteer training as well as basic orientation.

Indirect Care Volunteers help by providing administrative assistance on special projects that enhance the work of our staff and support patients, families and the efforts of the teams in the field. Indirect Care Volunteers receive basic orientation, training specific to task undertaking, and are encouraged to attend initial hospice volunteer training.

Additional support meetings and educational opportunities are offered throughout the year as well as ongoing personal support and social gatherings.
