Encompass Health is looking for a volunteer to provide brief caregiver relief, companionship, light house-keeping and occasional errand running to patients and their families 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.

A few ways you can help as a hospice volunteer is by running errands for patients and families, playing games or reading with patients, walking and caring for family pets, or even creating a photo album of the patient and their family.
