Hospice Volunteers needed in Garland Area
4 people are interested
Hospice volunteers can dedicate as little or as much time as they wish. Some volunteers donate several hours each week while others commit to a few hours each month. All hospice volunteers receive training to ensure that they feel comfortable performing their requested/assigned care activities.
Listed below are examples of common hospice volunteer duties:
Being present with the patient to allow their caregiver to rest and/or run errands.
Listening to the patient. They may share their concerns, regrets, and/or areas of thankfulness with you. You may have opportunities to encourage the patient to share their life story.
Engaging in the patient’s hobbies - perhaps reading to them, listening to music, discussing current events or playing a board or card game.
If interested please contact Volunteer Coordinator, Julie Gazinski - Julie.Gazinski@encompasshealth.com
