Volunteer Homemaker for the Terminally Ill

La Diferencia Hospice

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 6 people are interested

We are needing volunteers to help clean and/or organize patient's homes. These volunteers could be former CNA's or nurses or anyone who understands the importance of a clean and organized home at the end of life. We are looking for volunteers who want to pay it forward or volunteers who just want to help a vulnerable population of the terminally ill. If you can donate 1 or 2 hours a week to provide a patient with some household peace of mind that would be great.

For many volunteers this would add to your resume and/or provide you with a recommendation from our office for future employment.

Volunteers will clean and provide companionship to patients while you are visiting. Many times patients and their loved ones do not have the strength nor energy to clean and organize their homes. Our volunteers would be able to visit with the patients and do a load of dishes too. For more information contact Janet S. Garza, Volunteer Coordinator, LMSW, 210-516-5980 or to set up an interview email janet.garza@ladiferenciahospice.com.
