Description

This is a fantastic opportunity for extensive one-on-one contact with our clients! Our patients live in their own homes or nursing facilities conveniently located throughout San Antonio and surrounding areas. Interns have the opportunity to be a part of the Interdisciplinary Team Meetings, working alongside MSW's, Chaplains and Medical Directors. Interns will receive exposure to end-of-life processes and disease processes as well as providing emotional support and companionship to patients and their families. Interns will often sit and talk with their patients, play board games, read, simply share stories, look at family photos and more. If you would like to make a difference in someone's life while benefitting from experiential learning, this volunteer opportunity is perfect for you!

No medical skills or experience are required, our expert clinicians provide all medical care. Orientation to hospice, family dynamics, and grief is provided before volunteers begin visiting patients. A background check, TB test, and drug screening are part of our orientation process.
