My name is Kylie Hagarty and I have recently accepted a position with Kindred Hospice in Avon as their Volunteer Coordinator, therefore my passion is to pair eager volunteers with our Hospice patients to fit their needs. As a Kindred Hospice Volunteer, you would be able to collaborate with our company and be paired with patients based on their interests and needs. This is a great opportunity to be flexible with your schedule, build-up resumes, gain great experience, and most importantly make a difference with amazing people. Some tasks for a Volunteer could include...

  • Listen, read, or sing
  • Send a card
  • Make gifts for patients
  • Run errands or perform light housekeeping
  • Share flowers, bake, or garden
  • Administrative office support
  • Make phone calls
  • Attend community events

Our agencies also offer veteran-to-veteran opportunities and participate in the national We Honor Veterans programs.

Volunteering takes no advanced medical training or great commitment. We support our volunteers and appreciate the important role they play in hospice care. We prepare volunteers with specific training including:

  • The hospice care team and the volunteer role
  • The hospice philosophy and end-of-life care
  • Grief and bereavement education
  • Emotional and spiritual support in hospice care
  • Communication and stress management
  • Patient privacy and other regulations

The COVID-19 virus has been a detrimental factor to our Hospice population. Service and companionship Is needed now more than ever. Although COVID-19 has most likely changed the Volunteer/ Community Service Program quite a bit, I would love to discuss further the opportunities we have to offer you whether it be in the present or future.

I hope to hear from you soon!
