Hospice Patient Companion
2 people are interested
Some of our patients have family who live far away, or are maybe just can't be with their loved one as much as they'd like. Our patients are in their own homes or senior living facilities around the Carbondale area. We'd match you up with a patient to visit (no hands on care, just being a friend) that would fit your schedule and location. We'd only ask that you visit for three to four hours every month. I'm sure we've all wasted that much time over a month. We'll provide the training and pay for all the background checks, etc. This is great for students going into medical careers who want to have a patient-centered experience, and for any who are interested in spending time giving back.
Disclaimer: We are sorry but we can't accept any court ordered community service.
