Volunteer Opportunities: We at VHS Hospice Services of NJ are looking for talented volunteers to provide companionship and respite by demonstrating their Music & Art skills, to families and patients at their end of life stage.

Training: Volunteers are required to complete our training program, designed to prepare the individual for working with families and patients. Training is free of service.

VHS Hospice Services of NJ serves patients in Passaic and Bergen counties. We are an affiliate of Hackensack Meridian Health. Hospice is care for individuals who are terminally ill with six months or less to live. Hospice is a philosophy of care that focuses on the comfort of the patient and not curative treatment. Hospice care is provided in the home, hospital, or a facility setting.

Additionally, a great opportunity for students completing Internships, field placements, or volunteer service hours with hospice, can expect to gain experience working with patients in a companionship role as well as the administrative functions of hospice. Training is provided both in the field and in the office with team members. Students may choose the role in which they wish to complete their hours in.

Description

VHS Hospice Services of NJ serves patients in Passaic, Bergen, and Hudson counties. We are an affiliate of Hackensack Meridian Health. Hospice is a philosophy of care that focuses on improving the quality of life for individuals with life-limiting illness. Hospice care is provided in the home, hospital, or a facility setting. Volunteers provide companionship and respite by visiting patients and families, as well as office, clerical, and bereavement support. Companionship can entail reading to patients, watching TV, playing cards, or simply sitting with them for support. Office volunteers can complete clerical work such as filing and copying in our Totowa office location. Bereavement volunteers provide support through phone calls and letters. Volunteers have the option of partaking in any individual, or multiple types of volunteering. We provide all training prior to interested volunteers visiting patients.
