Because Every Life is Beautiful!

Bella Care Hospice provides compassionate care to patients - and their families - during and after the final stage of their life. Volunteers serve an important purpose by giving their time.

Bella Care has patients who are Veterans of the United Stated military in the area that could benefit from a volunteer who is also a military veteran. Veteran volunteers can provide an extraordinary camaraderie for our Veteran patients that other companionship volunteers cannot.

Volunteers are needed who are able to spend a minimum of 1 hour per week with our patients.

Volunteers must have their own transportation (and insurance, if appropriate), pass a background investigation and a tuberculosis test (both provided by Bella Care Hospice), and successfully complete volunteer orientation and training (also provided by Bella Care Hospice).

The ideal volunteer candidate does not need experience; instead, they need patience, compassion, and concern for their companion.

Volunteers must: be respectful of patients, staff, and other volunteers they interact with; complete their scheduled visits or reschedule them promptly; document their visits appropriately; follow Bella Care’s policies and legal requirements.

Bella Care Hospice is required by Federal law to have a volunteer program for our patients. Volunteers serve as companions - and often friends - for our patients, many of whom may only be visited by our volunteers.

Volunteers provide an impartial person for the patient to socialize with. Hospice volunteers usually experience a great deal of satisfaction from their service and usually develop strong emotional bonds with the patients they visit. Some earn community service credit for volunteering while others gain valuable experience and contacts in the health care industry.
