About Encompass Health
220 S. Canal St., Suite B, Carlsbad, NM 88220, US
At Encompass Health, we believe hospice is not a place, but rather a philosophy of care. Our goal is to bring dignity and comfort home by offering compassionate care to patients and their families during the final stages of life.
As the Volunteer coordinator, my goal is to help our hospice families in every way we can, to give them the peace they deserve, in their time of need. Volunteers can choose the areas they feel they are best suited for. You might provide companionship, help with general office support, run errands for patients and families, play games, read, and listen to music with patients, walk or care for family pets, assist with light house cleaning, create a photo album of patient and family, write a journal or life story with patients, to give to family, and so much more.
Our company has a goal of 5% of our services being done by volunteers. We are in need of volunteers in the Hobbs, Lovington, Artesia, & Carlsbad, NM area. If your heart leads you in this area, please give me a call, or email.
