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.
Join the Encompass Health family and become a hospice volunteer! Encompass is looking for volunteers to provide companionship and support to patients during their final months and weeks of life. Volunteers provide non-medical services and respite time for caregivers and family members. As a hospice volunteer you will be given choices as to how much and what types of things you want to do. Here are just a few specific ways hospice volunteers can make a difference:
Provide companionship and socialization
Help with general office support
Run errands for patients and families
Write a journal or life story with patients to give to the family
Play games, read, listen to music with patients
Walk/care for family pets
Assist with light house cleaning
Create a photo album of patient and family
Encompass Health values the generosity of our volunteers and provides training and on-going support. For more information or to sign up for the next volunteer training/orientation please contact:
