Hospice Compassionate Companions needed in Pewaukee area
5 people are interested
Allay's Hospice Companions bring comfort to patients and relief to their caregivers by offering a supportive presence, a listening ear, and a helping hand.
When visiting, volunteers may offer to play music or a game, read to the patient, listen to his/her stories and memories, sit with a patient outside or take him/her for a walk, or offer assistance with other non-medical tasks. There are also times when volunteers may simply sit quietly while holding one's hand, letting the patient know that he or she is not alone. It's just having that connection to another person, no matter how simple, that can make a big difference on one's quality of life.
The amount of time you give is flexible and scheduled around your availability. We do take into account your location to assign patient visits that are near or within your community.
Hospice Companions receive training regarding the philosophy of hospice, the role of the volunteer and other staff members, as well as, helpful skills in caring for and communicating with hospice patients and their families.
Volunteer and patient safety are our top priority. We follow CDC guidelines & respect the Covid-19 protocols of our partner facilities. At this time, volunteers are asked to complete a self-screening checklist prior to visits, wear a mask during visits and, of course, adhere to standard precautions, such as frequent handwashing. Allay will provide the necessary Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to ensure safe practices can be followed.

Allay Hospice consistently strives to provide the best, most compassionate care that can be experienced through the last phase of life's journey. Our goal is to ensure that those with a life-limiting illness live each day to the fullest in comfort and dignity. At Allay, we are committed to taking care of our patients and families as we would our own.
Hospice is not a place, but a special way of caring that promotes one's quality of life and death with dignity. When medicine cannot provide a cure, Allay Hospice offers patients and their families the comfort, compassion and assistance necessary to maintain the best possible quality of life.
Allay is a locally owned hospice with offices in Brookfield, Waterford, Jackson, & Sheboygan to serve all communities of Southeastern Wisconsin.
*Our volunteers work side by side with Allay's experienced hospice team in providing comfort and care when it is needed most. For all of our volunteer opportunities, the amount of time you give is flexible and assignments are based on your availability and location; we do our best to assign volunteers within or near their own community.
