Friendly Visitor. Hospice Volunteer, Calumet Co.
1 person is interested
Volunteers are the HEART of Hospice. We are looking for kind, caring individuals to provide companionship as a friendly visitor to our patients in end of life care. Patients are in facilities and homes throughout the Calumet County area so there is likely a person in need conveniently close to you. A visit brightens their day and lightens your heart.
As a Hospice Visistor Volunteer you may:
- Provide active listening and a caring presence
- Read a book or listen to their favourite music
- Play games or take walks as they are able
- Participate in life review or just hear their stories
- Be present while a caregiver rests
- Remember special days
- Laugh with them
- Or just hold their hand while they rest
Volunteers typically visit with a patient once a week for 1 - 2 hours. Scheduling is flexible. Training is provided so you can be confident and comfortable in doing an excellent job as a Companion Volunteer. You will develop soft social skills such as active listening and empathetic companionship in a health care setting. This can reflect well on a resume.
If you are interested in doing something that will give back and be a heart expanding experience, call Robert Pamenter at 920 252-5066 or email Robert.Pamenter@Aurora.org
