Hold a hand. Play cards. Tell a Story. Make memories.
Do you have an hour each week to change a life? Are you ready for a life enriching experience? Is helping others especially gratifying for you?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, being a hospice volunteer may be of interest. Those entrusted to all hospice programs are entitled by federal law to benefit from volunteerism and RVNAhealth is a great place to have positive impact. There is no minimum time requirement or obligation to specific tasks; you choose what type of service is right for you and we accommodate it as best we can. There are two types of hospice volunteer opportunities, both which require an intensive training, as required by law. They are:
Family Support Volunteer - interact with patients and their families by providing patient companionship or respite (rest) for a loved one by running errands or being there when they can’t. Family Support Volunteers provide no medical or personal care to patients, and visit our patients wherever they call home.
Administrative Volunteer - provide administrative support through organizing and ordering supplies, assembling marketing and new patient materials, and other general office duties. Administrative Volunteers typically have no patient contact.
A thorough screening is done for all volunteers, including a background check. For more information or to receive a call from the hospice volunteer coordinator, please visit us online: rvnahealth.org/support-us/volunteer, or email our hospice volunteer coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org
