Hospice of the Valley is excited for the opening of our new Dementia Campus in late Summer/ early Fall 2021. We are looking for sewers and knitters to make enrichment items for our patients living with dementia. Our greatest needs are for dementia activity pads/ aprons/ books, twiddle-muffs, clothing protectors and rice bags. You are invited to sew/ knit at your own pace and donate whatever you please. Thank you for using your own materials - however, we are happy to share any donations we receive. These handmade treasures will bring smiles to our patients and will serve as an added layer of comfort to their families.
Please reach out to Volunteer Coordinator, Eileen Dullum at 602-327-5339 or email her at: email@example.com for patterns and questions.
Bringing Comfort and Dignity as Life Nears its End.
Hospice of the Valley's mission focuses on caring. Hospice care treats the whole person, as well as nurturing the family. When a loved one has a life-limiting illness, the extended family also needs support. A team of professionals helps the patient stay pain-free, comfortable and fully engaged.
As a volunteer you will have the opportunity to serve our patients, their families and our agency in a variety of ways. The greatest volunteer need is to serve our patients in their homes or in one of our many inpatient units. Patient care volunteers provide in-home respite care ensuring that the patient is not alone while the caregiver takes a much needed break.. Volunteers also provide socialization, transportation and supportive assistance like running errands. Other opportunities for service include pet therapy, administrative support, thrift store associates, special events, fundraising and Ryan House pediatrics. Please visit www.hov.org and follow the volunteer tab to apply and see all of our opportunities.
Our volunteer training course is offered several times a year. The success of the volunteer program is dependent upon your ongoing commitment to our patients and the agency.
