COVID 19 Hospice Volunteer Help
We are in need of the following:
- Letter writing- volunteers to write notes, send cards/ messages to patients (and their families) during this time. Just encouraging and upbeat messages, if you have children-perhaps they can color a picture for the patient. Anything that might bring a smile. Please keep your receipt for stamps and you will be reimbursed. This is considered a patient visit and the patient visit form should be completed. I can provide more if needed.
- Friendly Calls- Make a call to a patient/family member to socialize. You can offer a much needed voice and support. This is considered a patient visit and the patient visit form should be completed. I can provide more if needed.
- Shop and Drop- pick up groceries or other supplies that will be pre-ordered and deliver to patient. No money exchange. You and/or the social worker will help the patient order the items.
