Encompass is a hospice service serving the Greater Houston area, our job is to take care of the patients’ physical, emotional and spiritual needs. Doctors, nurses, chaplains, social workers and many others work closely together to make sure those needs are met. To meet all of those needs requires a great deal of time and resources.
As a volunteer, you would allow our teams of hospice care specialists to spend more of their focus on our patients during their darkest hour. You would assist staff in a wide range of important duties such as data entry, filing, copying, mailings, and other essential functions required of hospice care. This service would take place in our office during normal business hours Monday through Friday 8 am to 5 pm. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated and thank you for even considering joining our team.
