No one should die alone. We are looking for compassionate volunteers to sit with the patients in their last days of life. The goal of this volunteer is to offer companionship for a patient. The service is provided as needed in shifts. Volunteers will be called when there is a need- you get to decide if you are available or not. Volunteers will be provided specialized training for this role.
The main objective is to be comfortable and provide non-medical support up until the last moments. The ideal person will possess good communication skills, good judgement regarding the death and dying process and issues related to death. You must be able to work independently- while keeping the team updated- and be empathetic and compassionate with a good attitude.
Each assignment has its own rules and regulations regarding Covid-19 that all volunteers must follow.
Hospice and vigil training will be provided. We will pay for a background check, TB tests, provide training and we provide mileage reimbursement- parking is free.
