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.

Our goal is to provide a sense of dignity and peace for our patients while controlling pain, minimizing discomfort and managing symptoms. We also prioritize emotional and spiritual needs, guiding out patients and their loved ones through the end-of-life process.
