Do you enjoy working with the elderly? Would you like to make a huge difference in someone’s life? Encompass Health-Hospice needs volunteers to provide companionship and support to patients during their final months and weeks of life. They provide non-medical services and respite time for patients and family members. You can choose how many hours you would like to provide, and what time of day you would like to provide them. Activity options include playing games, reading, listening to music, watching movies, playing an instrument, knitting or crocheting, going on walks, helping with simple chores, or helping the patient create a life story or photo book.
At Encompass Health, we believe hospice is not a place, but rather a philosophy of care. Our goal is to bring dignity and comfort home by offering compassionate care to patients and their families during the final stages of life. .
