Veteran volunteers will be needed to visit fellow veterans

Veterans will be needed to visit fellow veterans and provide companionship, conversation or just a listening ear once COVID-related visiting restrictions lift. Will you join us now to train virtually (on your computer or tablet) and complete processing so you'll be ready to visit a fellow veteran once a month at a local facility for lunch and conversation?

You can train from your couch until we are able to get out and make visits. Once we can, you'll make your own schedule. Most volunteers spend a few hours a month visiting local facilities or homes for times when a caregiver needs a break. Volunteer all year round or just when you're seasonally available. There's no special skill needed- just a desire to be present and show that you care.

Our clinical staff handles all care so there's no lifting, no medical experience or hands-on care.

Give us a call to learn more about how you can be a friend and companion to a Veteran in your local community. We need people just like you...for as little or as much time as you might be able to offer. Call Dorothy at 863-382-4563 to learn more or just ask a few questions.

About Cornerstone Hospice

Mission Statement

Cornerstone Hospice's mission is simple: Delivering extraordinary care to every person we touch in every community we serve. Volunteer opportunites are available throughout the seven Central Florida counties we serve: Hardee, Highlands, Lake, Orange, Osceola, Polk and Sumter, and now in Cobb County, Georgia. If you live in a neighboring county, you can still volunteer. However, all of your volunteer activities will take place in one of our seven counties, typically the one closest to you. PLEASE NOTE: Even if you are interested in several different volunteer roles within our organization, you only need to click on one opportunity during this process. You will have a chance to discuss ALL of your areas of interest during your volunteer training. Thanks!

Description

Cornerstone Hospice volunteers are a vital part of our entire organization, and play an active role in helping to provide the many special comfort and support services that distinguish Cornerstone Hospice care.

Our volunteers are special, but not out of the ordinary. They are regular people just like you. They use common sense and understanding. They do not need a medical background. They listen. They care. Volunteers help make a patient's life more fulfilling and satisfying by giving their time, understanding, and support and asking nothing in return. They also provide support to caregivers who are often with the patient 24/7 and may need a much needed break. If direct care is not for you, you can assist with administrative tasks at our office locations, and help out with events and community outreach. Any Cornerstone Hospice volunteer will tell you that they feel they receive more from their experience than they give.

PLEASE NOTE: All volunteers are required to go through a training class with additional training required for some positions. For this reason, becoming a Cornerstone Hospice volunteer is typically not appropriate for court related community service hours or other short-term requests. Ideally, our volunteers commit to at least one year with us.
