Are you a warm and compassionate person? Penn Hospice at Rittenhouse invites you to volunteer as a 'friendly visitor' at our center city inpatient unit. As a member of the care team (medical, psychosocial, & spiritual clinicians and volunteers) you will provide companionship and presence to hospice patients and their family members, listening to life stories, discussing current events, reading aloud, watching TV programs, offering support, or just providing quiet presence. The volunteer serves as a welcome and vital addition to the team by focusing solely on the present moment, offering distraction and ease in the midst of often difficult days.
