Are you a Reiki or Therapeutic Touch practitioner looking for an opportunity to give back your time and make a difference in the lives of others? Consider joining our team as a volunteer to help us bring comfort to those who are at the end of life!
Bella Care Hospice provides compassionate and holistic care to our patients to help alleviate pain and increase the quality of life for their final days. We seek to bring our patients peace and dignity through health, social, emotional, and spiritual support. As a volunteer you can play a key part in our service by providing companionship and forming valuable relationships, and by being a non-anxious presence with those who are less socially responsive. We are specifically looking for volunteers who have been trained to provide healing touch. Many of our patients have become less aware of their physical and social surroundings, light touch can be a valuable way to make a connection and help them feel comforted.
Would you help us with your techniques to bring relaxation, anxiety and pain relief, and harmony to our hospice patients? Anyone with a compassionate desire to sit with the dying can join our team as a companion volunteer; in order to practice healing touch you must have proof of training and a certificate/licensure in Reiki, Therapeutic Touch, or similar practice.
All volunteers must pass background checks, TB testing, and go through our hospice orientation program. Bella Care provides all this at no cost to you and we will work with your scheduling needs for training as well as volunteering. We want to make sure you are supported and set up for success to be a hospice volunteer!
