Lindenwood Hospice & Palliative Care

Covid- 19 has caused isolation for all of us. Our hospice patients and their families are especially at risk and suffering from a lack of connection. We are in need of individuals to become hospice volunteers who are willing to make phone or video call "visits" to patients and their families. A simple check-in of a friendly voice can make all the difference! Perhaps read a short story over the phone or read some jokes. If you have musical talents, you are encouraged to share them! These calls will connect the volunteer to patients/families in need of a friend.
Lindenwood Hospice & Palliative Care is looking for dedicated volunteers to provide companionship and socialization to hospice patients by phone during Covid 19 and hopefully volunteers will want to continue in person visits once safety measures have been established.

Must be a good listener. May involve chatting, hearing life stories, reading to a patient.

Mission Statement

At Lindenwood Hospice and Palliative Care our goal is to help patients and their family navigate the difficulties of life limiting illness. We encourage independence and promote dignity as we work through end-of-life decisions and legacy planning and we strive to relieve the individual’s suffering, whether physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual.


Volunteers at Lindenwood help provide compassionate care and support alongside our hospice team. Volunteer tasks may include administrative duties as well as direct care and virtual support opportunities. The following are examples of just some of the ways volunteers can be involved.
Administrative tasks:
*Creating welcome packets for families
*Writing notes of encouragement to caregiving staff and family members
*Bereavement support volunteers reach out to family members through phone calls and hand written cards

Direct care tasks:
*Providing respite to family members by sitting with patients so they can take care of daily tasks (respite is limited to 1 hour per visit)
*Assisting family members with light housework or running errands

Virtual support tasks:
*Phone or video calls to read, pray or talk with patients provides companionship and comforting presence
*Volunteers with musical abilities may also be encouraged to share their talents with patients through video or phone calls

Volunteers are vital to the caring work of hospice.
