Interim Healthcare

  • 2 people are interested

We are recruiting and training individuals who would like to assist with our patients and families when COVID restrictions are relaxed and patient care volunteers can safely enrich the lives of our clients. Do you have a particular skill in music, pet therapy, massage, or Reiki therapy? Would you like to visit with isolated individuals or keep them company while their family care-givers take a break? Do you have the special ability to be present with someone in silence, perhaps even to assure that they are not alone as their end of life is imminent and family cannot be with them? There are many different roles and opportunities to touch the lives of others in very meaningful ways.

Hospice volunteers feel a deep sense of satisfaction at being able to help someone at the end of their life, and they feel like they’ve made a real, significant contribution to their community. They are truly compassionate people who make deep connections with patients and their families.
