Bristol Hospice - Atlanta, LLC

  • 5 people are interested
End of the day

Bristol Hospice is in need of Patient Companion Volunteers in the Atlanta, South Atlanta, West Atlanta area, Lithia Springs, Powder Springs, Douglasville areas. The need is immediate.
We go where our patients are, home, assisted living facility, nursing homes, memory care units. There is travel involved.
If you have a love of helping patients and families of the terminally ill then let's talk.

In order to be considered you must be:

  • fill out and return application
  • 16 years old or older
  • Be able to travel to where the patient currently lives
  • Pass background check (we pay for that)
  • Pass drug test and TB test (we pay for that)
  • Provide a copy of your GADL/ Insurance
  • Complete your online Relias training modules
  • Attend an orientation

At Bristol Hospice, We also have a need for a SUBGROUP of VIGIL VOLUNTEERS WHO SIT WITH THE ACTIVELY DYING PATIENT. Same requirements as above. There is travel involved and the schedule is AS NEEDED.

What is a VIGIL VOLUNTEER?
They are a specially trained group who volunteer to sit with people who have hours to live.
All Vigil Volunteers are specifically called to go wherever people are dying, nursing homes, ALF's PCH, memory care units, and private homes. There is travel involved.
Sometimes, the people they visit are conscious, but often, the patients are unable to communicate. we do not want our patients to ever have to leave this world alone. Many times hospice patients have no family, many are out of state and trying to get here, some have said their goodbyes, some families just need added support during the transition of their loved one. Whatever the case might be we want to be able to give that gift of presence. Music therapy is something we would like to offer so if you play an instrument let me know. to be considered you must be able to go out on short notice, sit at least three-hour shifts, be calm, committed and be comfortable with the dying. You do not have to have any medical experience. 18 years or older, men and women welcome. We need Vigil Volunteers needed to cover - Cobb County, Fulton, Dekalb, Gwinnett, North Fulton, and Cherokee counties. If this sounds like something you would like to be a part of, let’s talk!
