Volunteer to Visit Patients
AseraCare Hospice an Amedisys Company
A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
Our volunteers that have completed the training series and who have been cleared through the screening process will be cleared to visit with families and our patients. Our patients look forward to getting visits from our volunteers. Volunteers provide extra companionship by visiting, and providing respite care for the family by staying with the patient for a short period of time so the family can run to the grocery store or appointment. Volunteers do not assist in patient care such as bathing or other personal care. Everything will be worked around your schedule and is flexible.
