We are looking for pet therapy certified - dogs, cats, rabbits and any certified pet that would bring comfort to a hospice patient to join our team!

There are many hospice patients that will benefit from you and your certified pet therapy pet's loving presence. Consider bringing your compassionate heart and presence, and the amazing extra of your loving pet to visit hospice patients in your community.

Many of our patients live in an assisted living setting where they would benefit from your pet-assisted companionship. Pet visits often stimulate beautiful memories of a sweet relationship with a beloved pet, promote tender life stories, and bring comfort at this most intimate and sacred time.

Spend 2-4 hours a week visiting patients in your community. We serve patients and families throughout the Portland and Salem areas. We assign you and your pet to visit a patient in your community.

The first step is to contact me and meet at your favorite coffee shop where we'll talk about hospice and what volunteering entails.

The volunteer training is at your pace. Our education will help deepen your awareness of the healing presence you have available to share with others. Please join our outstanding hospice team for this rewarding work!

There are 3 levels of education to complete with approx 21hrs of training. You and your pet are required to be a trained pet therapy team through an accredited program. If you would like to know how to begin, please contact me and I can help! We follow all CMS/CDC/State guidelines on safety, testing, background/driver checks and tb test.

To find out more please contact me - Tammy Paladeni, Signature Hospice Volunteer Coordinator, tammy.paladeni@sighch.com, 971-718-3578.

I look forward to hearing from you!

About Signature Hospice

Location:

7632 SW Durham Rd, Suite 130, Portland, OR 97224, US

Mission Statement

To enhance the life of every person we serve.

Description

Our Signature Hospice team is reflective of a spirit and idea of caring that emphasizes comfort and dignity for the dying, making it possible for those we serve to remain independent for as long as possible, and in familiar surroundings.

Signature Hospice affirms life. We exist to provide support and care for persons in the last phases of a life-limiting illness so that they may live as fully and comfortably as possible. We believe every little thing we do, can and will make a difference in the lives of our patients and their families.

We believe that providing care for a terminal patient is a sacred and honored opportunity to help people live as fully as possible while embracing the demands of terminal illness.

While our main office is located in Portland, Oregon, we have opportunities available throughout the Portland Metropolitan area, Hillsboro, Sandy, McMinnville, Salem and more. Join our team!
