We at Salus Hospice are seeking compassionate individuals to provide a supportive presence during a patient's final hours. Our vigil volunteers provide peace and comfort to the patient and family. Vigil volunteers often are sent to the bedside of those who would otherwise die alone. Healthcare experience not required. You will receive training and support to help you enjoy a positive and rewarding volunteer experience.

As a vigil volunteer:

  • You must be comfortable with, and able to talk about, death and dying
  • During a vigil, a patient could pass in front of you
  • Hospice care is provided at a patients home, skilled nursing facility, assisted living facility and/or board and care homes
  • Vigils take place in the last hours before death. You will need to be available to work during the day, night, and sometimes overnight
Vigil volunteers often share how fortunate they feel to be able to provide a calming presence for a patient (and family) during this sacred journey. Being a witness during this transition can be beautiful, almost magical.


Requirements:

Complete paperwork to include copy of driver's license and auto insurance
Attend a 4 hour hospice training
Attend a 1 hour specialized vigil training
Authorize a back ground check (no fee to you)
Receive a TB test (no fee to you)
