Volunteers are the HEART of Hospice. We are looking for kind caring individuals to provide companionship to our patients in end of life care. Patients are located in facilities and homes in the Howards Grove area so there is likely a patient conveniently near you.
As a Hospice Companion Volunteer you may:
- Provide active listening and a caring presence
- Read a book or listen to their favorite 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 very flexible.Training is provided so you can be confident in doing an excellent job as a Companion Volunteer. No patient cares are involved. 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.
