Hospice care is not only for the recipient, it is for loved ones as well. A team of doctors, nurses, social workers, spiritual care coordinators, family and volunteers work together with the goal of improving the quality of life for patients and their families. Hospice volunteers are an essential part of providing support, and the process is mutually rewarding and beneficial for both volunteer and recipient.
Our volunteers are carefully vetted and undergo comprehensive training to learn about the hospice philosophy and how to best contribute to care.
Hospice volunteers provide companionship for you and your loved ones during their visits. Additionally, volunteers may be licensed to provide:
- Beauty or barber services
- Handyman work
- Light household work
- Therapy such as music or pet therapy from licensed service animals
- Bereavement support
- Services as needed for your unique situation
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
About Kindred Hospice
824 Stillwater Ave, Suite B, Bangor, ME 04401, US
At the center of hospice is the belief that each of us has the right to die pain free, with dignity, and that our families will receive the necessary support to allow us to do so. Hospice care can take place in a variety of settings. Our compassionate care provides the physical, emotional and spiritual resources needed to make the most of every moment, with the extraordinary service you expect. We understand your needs and goals, and support both in each step of your journey.
The benefit of hospice care is greatest when services are provided early enough within your loved one’s eligibility to:
* Maintain independence and take control of the illness or disease
* Complete important tasks
* Organize personal affairs
* Complete spiritual services
* Say goodbye to loved ones
