POSITION SUMMARY:

The volunteer provides patient care and support services according to his/her experience and training and in compliance with hospice policies. As you know, the novel coronavirus has intercepted our ability to socially engage as usual. Social distancing has caused many seniors to no longer receive visits from their love ones and unfortunately, many seniors are simply lonely. With this, we hope our Pen Pal program will bring some light to this challenging situation.

QUALIFICATIONS:

  1. Mature individual, supportive of the hospice concept.
  2. Is willing to serve others in volunteer capacity.
  3. Previous volunteer experience may be helpful.
  4. Ability to work within and interdisciplinary team.
