Hospice House Greeter - Taylor House
UnityPoint at Home Hospice
Help needed at our Des Moines-area Hospice Home, Taylor House. We need volunteers to greet and screen visitors upon arriving at the home. Temperatures are taken and visitors are given a badge upon arrival. Nurses and aides are busy attending to the health care needs of our patients and support is needed to monitor the front door.

Hospice care at UnityPoint is a coordinated care approach between a medical director, physician, nurse and others who all work together to provide the right plan of care to improve the quality of life for the patient. The hospice team is supportive in every way necessary to honor the wishes of the patient. Hospice is not about giving up hope; it is about doing everything possible to live life to its full capacity.
UnityPoint Hospice volunteers are an integral part of the Hospice care team. Volunteers can provide direct and indirect patient support. Direct support includes: bedside companionship, respite care for the family, patient life review, supportive phone calls, letter writing to the patient, hand massage, listening to music, playing a musical instrument, pet therapy. Indirect support includes: running errands, greeting and screening visitors at Taylor House, administrative tasks, answering phones, etc. We work with each volunteer to help determine the right fit and area in which to help.
