Holisticare Hospice is looking for Bereavement and Vigil Volunteers throughout Middlesex, Monmouth and Ocean Counties in New Jersey!
This is a perfect opportunity for End of Life Doulas, Bereavement and Grief Councilors, Thanatology and Gerontology Students, Medical and Health Professionals, Energy Healing Practitioners, Clergy Members and more!
Bereavement Volunteers to offer support and compassion to family members once a hospice patient has passed. Volunteers may make phone calls, do in-person visits, help organize or co-facilitate support groups, all with the support and guidance of other hospice team members.
Vigil Volunteers typically sit with patients and families during the dying process. A Vigil Volunteer is a presence, compassionate listener, bringer of rituals, still and quiet. They are an invited guest into a most sacred and personal transition. They understand that this transition is physical and spiritual and that each situation or vigil is unique. Vigil Volunteers go to patients when the time of death is near. Their primary concern is the comfort of the patient.

From its inception, the mission of Holisticare Hospice has been to ensure that end-of-life care envelops the patient, their caregivers, and their families with spiritual and physical comfort. Forgoing curative treatment and opting for a palliative approach allows hospice care to be provided where the patient lives, surrounded by family and friends with the support of experienced healthcare professionals.
Hospice is a type of care and a philosophy of care that focuses on the palliation of a terminally ill patient’s symptoms. These symptoms can be physical, emotional, spiritual or social in nature. Hospice care is provided to people that have a limited life expectancy and choose comfort and relief from pain and other symptoms.
