Hospice Volunteer - Cambridge/Deerfield
1 person is interested
Our hope is to give our volunteers and patients an engaging experience. Many of our volunteers have been with us for 5+ years and continue to learn new trades and skills from their patients.
The goal of the Heartland Hospice Friendly Visitor Volunteer Program is to connect patients with a companionship volunteer willing to learn and grow from and with them, offering support and a comforting presence, during this vital time in their life.
This may be simply being present with the patient who is diagnosed with 6 months or less to live (although some patients last much longer and even graduate from our services) without family members or friends available or providing support to family members who need a break from giving cares.
We visit patients where ever they call home (assisted livings, nursing homes, or privet residences).
Our Friendly Visitor Program runs any and all hours and is dependent on volunteer/patient needs and schedules. Consideration is given to the volunteer's location and availability, running on a 30-day schedule, i.e., 2 visits per 30 days.
Together, our volunteers and staff strive to make life as fulfilling and comfortable as possible through to the last moment.
We'll work with your schedule.
