Overlook Hospice Volunteer

For over a year, Hospice Volunteers have been sidelined by COVID. With folks getting vaccinated, some of our volunteers are again ready to visit hospice patients in their homes. Could you be one of them?

We are currently preparing our volunteers to begin visiting with a thorough new training on infection control, COVID protocols, and the proper use of PPE.

Next will be a complete training for new volunteers who are willing to step up to help our patients through their end of life journey.

The requirements are few but vitally important. An open heart and a bit of time is all that's needed. Sounds simple but it is exactly what's needed for you can make a profound difference in someone's life.

Hospice Volunteers provide companionship, respite care, and support to hospice patients and their families. Volunteers provide a wide range of services...reminiscing, walking dogs, playing cards, watching favorite movies, reading, supporting family members, giving caregivers a break, fixing a meal, or running errands.

Currently we are looking for volunteers to visit patients in their own homes in and around Charlton.

Full training and ongoing support is provided.

For more information, please contact Susan Fuller at 508-434-2200 or email at sfuller@overlook-mass.org

Please include your phone number in all responses.

Mission Statement

Setting the Standard of Excellence One Individual at a Time!

Description

Hospice care is considered to be the model for quality and compassionate care for people facing a terminal illness. At the center of hospice care is the belief that each of us has the right to die pain-free, with dignity and the comfort of knowing our families will receive the necessary support to allow us to do so.

Overlook Hospice Services provides a program of care to meet the needs of individuals, and their caregivers, nearing the end of life’s journey. Skilled professionals and dedicated volunteers help support both the patient and their families. Hospice Services helps relieve the physical, emotional, and social pain, which enables the seriously ill person to life at home with family, comfort and dignity. The support provides help to cope with the circumstances associated with a terminal illness

Hospice care is a philosophy of care that accepts dying as a natural part of life. When death is inevitable, hospice seeks neither to hasten nor postpone it.
