Make a difference in the life of a hospice patient

Caris Healthcare

  • 1 person is interested

Caris Healthcare in Dickson, TN has opportunities for volunteers in Dickson, Hickman, and Humphreys counties. We are looking for amazing individuals to brighten the days of our hospice patients. This can be done through three different volunteer categories: patient, administrative, and special projects.

Our patient volunteers spend time providing companionship for patients in their home (no caregiving) doing puzzles, watching tv, and listening to stories. Masks are required during visits. Online training, drug screening, and background checks are required before visiting patients. We are especially looking for veterans to provide companionship and support to fellow veterans.

Our administrative volunteers help with putting together info packets for prospective patients and write sympathy cards. This can be done from home and turned back into the office. Online training and screenings are required.

Our special projects volunteers can turn their love of crafting and art into gifts for our patients. Some examples of items made and gifted to patients are crocheted prayer shawls, wooden plaques for veterans thanking them for their service, small paintings, and fleece/PUL bed pads.

There are many ways to serve and make a hospice patient's day better.
