Avalon Hospice is looking for a direct care hospice volunteer that are looking to make a difference in the lives of others. Avalon Hospice supports volunteers and appreciates the important role they play in hospice care.

All hospice volunteers are given assignments that best suite their time, skills, and interests. The Direct Care Volunteer serves as an additional support to patients and families dealing with a terminal illness and end-of-life issues. Support is provided in a variety of ways, including the provision of companionship and socialization to patients, or offering respite to stressed caregivers. Direct Care Volunteers may also make tuck in calls to patients and families. All care provided by the Direct Care Volunteer is outlined in the Volunteer Care Plan and agreed upon by the Interdisciplinary Group (IDG).
