ORGANIZATION: James River Hospice

  • 6 people are interested

James River Hospice needs caring, compassionate volunteers to provide basic companionship for our patients and short-term respite (Caregiver Relief) for their families. Patients reside in healthcare facilities and home settings. Volunteers are requested to go wherever the patient resides to provide support.

Volunteers will: sit with patients while their families and / or caregivers run errands or need a break, engage in conversation, life review, reading, listening or playing music, engaging in television, storytelling, light housekeeping or meal prep, assist patients and their families with basic errands and so much more!

We are asking for a commitment of 1-4 hours weekly based on patient / family needs. Companionship visits last roughly an hour. Visits for caregiver relief can last up to 4 hours to allow for doctor appointments, shopping, resting, etc.

All volunteers will be required to attend an orientation detailing the policies and procedures of hospice care, as well as their specific duties and roles.
