In-Home Companion

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Olathe Health

  • 19 people are interested

A hospice in-home companion visits with a terminally ill patient and their family in the patient's home, providing socialization and support. They may share memories, play cards, read to the patient, or just sit quietly while the patient rests. The family may leave the home to get a much-needed break. (Some loved ones haven't left their home in more than a year due to caring for the patient, so these breaks are so important.) Volunteers can be placed with a patient in their geographic area. Veteran volunteers can visit with Veteran patients. No direct patient care is required, just a willingness to visit and a caring heart.

Mission Statement

Olathe Health is focused on improving the health of all individuals in the communities we serve by providing compassionate, quality healthcare in an environment of trust and collaboration.

Description

Olathe Health Ambassadors, what we like to call our volunteers, work in both clinical and non-clinical areas. Their talents are used at information desks, reception areas, patient registration, surgery family room, business offices, hospice care, and the Gift Shops - just to name a few. They also help with special projects such as Community Blood Drives and fundraising events.
