Traditions Health, d.b.a. Hospice Community Care, Glen Allen, Virginia cares for terminally ill patients and those who love them. We are looking for Friendly Visitor volunteers to befriend our patients in Western Henrico, Glen Allen and Hanover.
You don't need to have hospice volunteer experience because we will train you. You will visit your patient in whatever setting your patient considers to be home (a house or apartment, a nursing home or assisted living facility) When you visit with your patient, you can play board games like Sorry! or checkers, watch classic movies on Turner Classic Movies (TCM) or weather permitting, you can take your patient outside for fresh air. In these times of Covid-19,there may be times when all your patient may need you to do to provide supportive presence. You can visit with your patient as many times a month as your patient would like and you are able to visit. Most Friendly Visitors see their patients a minimum of five times a month.
To potentially become a Hospice Community Care Friendly Visitor Volunteer, answer the questions from Volunteer Match. You must be at least 18 years of age and be a licensed driver with current auto insurance. Unfortunately, if you have a DUI on your driving record at anytime, you will be unable to volunteer. You will need to have a TB (for which Hospice Community Care pays) and a background check (which is also paid for by Hospice Community Care). This volunteer opportunity will allow you to make a great difference in the life of a terminally ill patient.
Your training will take place in Glen Allen and you will be assigned to a patient in Western Henrico, Glen Allen or Hanover. As a volunteer, you will need to adhere to all CDC guidelines including wearing a mask, hand washing or sanitizing and social distancing. We will train you regarding Covid-19 as well.

The mission of Hospice Community Care is to provide diginified end-of-life care and quality services that allow our patients and their families/significant others to live life richly, deeply and meaningfully for as long as it may last, and to die with dignity in the setting of their choice.
Hospice Community Care has been providing excellent end-of-life care for terminally-ill patients living in the Richmond Tri-Cities area since 2004 and The Peninsula area since 2007.
Hospice Community Care uses an interdisciplinary team approach to provide the highest quality of hospice care to our patient's and their loved ones.

It would be impossible to meet all of the needs of our patients and those who love them were it not for our exemplary volunteers who donate hundreds of hours of their gift of time every year. We have several exciting opportunities to offer people who are considering volunteering with hospice.
Volunteers must have a current driver's license and proof of auto insurance as well as a clean driving record. Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age. We will train you for the volunteer opportunity that you are most interested.
