Patient Support Volunteers
Sewing Volunteers: Help create keepsakes for families of their deceased loved one's favorite shirt, dress, or blanket made into a memory bear. This keepsake can provide support and feelings of comfort to family members who have recently lost a loved one. Use your gifts and talents to provide support to families during the grief process.
Cosmetologist Volunteers: If you are a licensed cosmetologist, stylist, or beautician, join Apreva Hospice and provide pampering and relaxation for patients who are unable to transport to a salon. Pampering can include: hair (shampoo, cut, set and style), manicure, or makeup application.
Reiki Practitioner: Provide support for patients in need through Reiki sessions. Visit patients in their homes or their long term health care facilities. If you are a Reiki Practitioner, we would love to work with you. Duties include offering Reiki sessions to the patient and/or caregiver.
Licensed Massage Therapist Volunteer: A compassionate touch can go a long way for those in need of comfort and solace. Sometimes all a patient needs is someone to hold their hand. Other times a light massage from a trained individual makes all the difference. If you are a Licensed Massage Therapist the Apreva Hospice Volunteer Program would love to work with you.
Music Volunteer: We are looking for individuals to volunteer their time and talent to provide social/musical visits to our patients. Music can provide a wonderful opportunity to connect with a patient, and promote feelings of comfort and safety for a patient in need. If you play an instrument, sing, or simply have a love for music and sharing it with others, this is the perfect opportunity for you.
Patient Support Volunteer: Duties may include: providing respite for patient caregivers, providing companionship to patients, running errands for patients or caregivers, light meal prep, light housekeeping, or reading to patients.
