If you have a heart for people and would like to make a difference in your community, please consider becoming a patient volunteer for Grace Hospice. This is a flexible program, you can volunteer any times or days you prefer. We currently have a patient in Chester that is looking for someone to sit with them so their spouse can take a break. This specific patient would like someone that could come in the afternoon possibly once a week or every other week.
Training is provided and you have the support of staff and medical professionals as well. This is a rewarding opportunity for you as well as the patient and family as you aid in life's final days. Volunteers share conversations, quiet times just "being there", aid in writing, music or pet therapy, however you feel can benefit your time together. You can even spend time giving the family a chance to leave the house to run an errand.
You will feel great knowing you participated in another person's comfort. Our volunteers often express how happy they feel in touching another person's life.
We'll work with your schedule.
