We are committed to patient safety and assuring that no patient dies alone. A Vigil Care Volunteer supports the plan of care for the hospice patient, to ensure patient safety and to provide a presence and support to the patient when death is imminent. Vigil Care is implemented to provide support to the caregiver/family members who feel overwhelmed or scared when death of their loved one is imminent.

Vigil Care Volunteers may come in hours or days before death. If the vigil is long, the vigil staff and volunteers may take shifts if the patient or family wants someone there continuously. Vigil Care Volunteers are asked to document using volunteer documentation tools. If you think you have what it takes to be a death vigil volunteer, contact us today!

Vigil Care may include:

  • Providing a calm physical presence
  • Sitting together
  • Talking and listening
  • Shared silence
  • Healing touch
  • Reading of scripture or inspirational text
  • Requested rituals
  • Inspirational music
  • Physical care by licensed skilled nurses or certified nursing assistants
