"No one visits anymore" was what the mom of a chaplain said to him one day. She was in hospice, had a life-limiting illness and could have used a caring person to come and spend time with her, talking about her life and sharing similar stories. Someone to watch a movie with on T.V., someone to read to her or write a letter or two to family members. Someone to play Scrabble or Yahtzee or cards with. That's what hospice volunteers do. They are a friendly, caring person who gives of their time and selves in selfless service to others. The times to visit are flexible and are appreciated for what you can do, if it's a couple hours a couple of times per month or more, that time is appreciated more than you will know. We provide the training and on-going supervision support, you provide yourself and your care. Most of our folks are in their own homes, sometimes a group home or facility.
Volunteers do so much for not only the patients but the families as well by being available to talk, visit and give time for the caregivers to have a break. Volunteers provide the kind of support that is special and unique, being the "no agenda" person in the patient's life.
If you have this kind of heart, please contact us and we'll make sure you are trained and ready to do this special work.
