Hospice seeks bilingual volunteer to sing/read to patient
2 people are interested
Choice Hospice Care would love to recruit a volunteer in the Redondo Beach area.
Volunteers are an integral part of our hospice team, and provide a range of no hands on care and support to individuals who are in the last six months of their life.
We would like to hear from anyone who might be interested in becoming a hospice volunteer, but specifically, we are currently seeking a female, bilingual (English and Spanish) individual who has a passion to help others and a caring nature.
The patient enjoys music and would love someone to sing to them and provide some social stimulation, particularly as the patient is not longer able to leave the house.
All hospice volunteers are required to complete an application and must be prepared to have an annual TB test, and on-boarding physical and background check. It is a commitment to become a hospice volunteer, but full training and orientation will be given, along with continued support.
About Choice Hospice Care
9003 Reseda Blvd, Northridge, CA 91324, US
Choice Hospice Care is certificated by Medicare and accredited by The Joint Commission to provide end-of-life care to individuals with a life limiting disease who are in the last six months of their life. Comfort care and support is delivered by our compassionate and caring health care professionals and volunteers in the patient's home or care facility. Our mission is to provide the best care, tailored for the patient's and family's individual situation with dignity, compassion, and tenderness. This mission involves holistic care of needs: physical, pain management, emotional, and spiritual.
Volunteers are an integral part of the hospice team, filling roles that range from visiting with patients to provide compassionate care and support, to assisting with clerical work in the office. We are currently developing a range of services that compliment the hospice program such as Pet Therapy, an Essential Oils Program and the We Honor Vets Program. We are also in the process of growing our core group of patient volunteers to ensure that we can meet the needs of our patients and their families.
We'll work with your schedule.
