Bereavement Volunteers Needed in Twin Cities/Metro

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Brighton Hospice

  • 14 people are interested

Assist Brighton's support team as they provide bereavement services to the families who have lost a loved one in our hospice program.

A bereavement volunteer sends mailings and provides telephone support to caregivers of those who have passed away in our hospice program. Callers will contact people at 1-2 months and 11-13 months following the death to offer a listening ear and to see if further follow-up is needed from our staff.

Training is provided. Calls can be made from the comfort of your own home!

Ideal candidates have:

  • A clear, pleasant phone voice
  • An ability to listen with compassion
  • Willingness to use our computer program to retrieve/log call information
  • Strong organizational skills and dependability

Time commitment once trained 1-2 hours/week

If you are interested in sharing your gift of time with our patients, please reach out and a Volunteer Coordinator will be in touch to discuss the volunteer opportunities available in your area in more detail. You can also find us on the web at www.brightonhospice.com.
