Compassionate Care Hospice

  • 2 people are interested

We are looking for kind, compassionate people to call patient's to check in on them or visit with our patients who are terminally ill. Visits can be in their private homes, assisted living or skilled nursing homes. As volunteers we provide companionship to the patient and/or respite care for the caregiver or family. A small amount of time spent with the patient makes a world of difference to them and their families. our volunteers are not required to feed, toilet or provide any personal care for patient. Our visits consist of companionship, helping patient participate in a hobby, reading to patient , providing a quiet presence holding a patients hand just so they know they are not alone. We provide all training that is required. We have our volunteers visit patients within 10-15 mile radius of where the volunteer lives. Our volunteers always say they feel like they get more out of visiting then they feel they are giving.
