This is for someone who likes to work alone, cleaning and maintaining medical equipment. No particular experience necessary but attention to details is required. A mechanical affinity is a plus, but not necessary. Hours can be flexible, about 2 to 3 hours a week, weekdays.
Volunteer Hospice of Clallam County lends medical equipment not only to its hospice patients, but to anyone in the community, free of charge. We also receive donations of medical equipment and need to ensure they are clean and in good working condition.
We do not ask for any minimum commitment from our volunteers and understand vacation plans, travel plans, and the unexpected in people's lives. We provide training appropriate to the position.
We are almost entirely funded through the generosity of the community (in money, volunteer time and expertise) as we do not seek reimbursement from any government agency or insurance company.
The mission of Volunteer Hospice of Clallam County is to provide physical, emotional and spiritual support to terminally ill patients and their families with free around the clock registered nursing availability and trained volunteers.
Volunteer Hospice of Clallam County is a non-profit charitable organization, which was founded in 1978, and operates with a 92% volunteer work force. Volunteers positions are varied: providing respite to the caregivers, offering companionship and support to the patients, offering grief and bereavement services to the community in grief support groups or individual sessions, delivering medical equipment and supplies to hospice and non-hospice patients, answering phones in the office, greeting visitors at the reception, providing clerical support in the office, helping with fundraising community events, and more. We provide all our services free of charge to patients and their families and serve Clallam County from Joyce to Diamond Point.
