Adminstrative Volunteers needed for "Tuck in Program"
6 people are interested
The Weekend Tuck-In Call Volunteer Program is a vital piece to our Hospice services, which requires an independent, outgoing and reliable volunteer willing to onboard ASAP.
The goal of this program is to maximize the role of the Volunteer in assisting other team members to serve patients more effectively and efficiently. In this program, trained Volunteers make telephone calls to patients that reside at home to assure that they have the necessary supplies, medications, and/or support that they might need over the weekend. Volunteers are provided training, necessary patient information and a script to follow in order to obtain the information requested. When a patient need is identified, information is relayed directly to the Manager of Volunteer Services. The appropriate team member can then meet the specific needs of patients and caregivers before the evening or weekend, thus saving on-call visits and potentially avoiding crisis calls.
All volunteers are required to submit to a Criminal Background check and to participate in a 2-4 hour training session. Individuals 16-17 are also required to have a guardian sign off on all orientation forms. If interested in this opportunity, please reply to this posting and the volunteer coordinator will be in contact with you shortly!
We'll work with your schedule.
