Volunteers are such a special part of the hospice care team. They can provide a variety of supportive services to enhance the quality of life for our patients and their families. Whether you prefer to interact with patients and families, or prefer to assist with tasks in an office setting, every volunteer has something significant to contribute to our programs and those we care for.
Our administrative volunteers can assist their local hospice program with answering calls, making copies, filing, mailings, data entry, putting together admission packets and training materials, or anything that helps to enrich our programs and assist our staff members.
Our direct volunteers can help our patients and families by:
* Visiting patients regularly to provide companionship and/or lift patient’s spirits * Sitting with patients to relieve families * Helping with light housekeeping * Working on life-history projects with patients * Providing bereavement or grief support to families after the loss of their loved ones * Providing specialized services like pet therapy and music enhancement * Reading to patients
While being a direct volunteer is not always easy, you enhance the lives of so many patients and families in everything that you do, and your support is priceless to us.
