Comfort Care Hospice of Pelham is looking for volunteers to donate their time and voice to our patients as a tuck in call volunteer. Tuck in calls are made weekly to assigned patients and/or caregivers. The goal of these weekly calls is to ensure all patient needs are met prior to the weekend.
Volunteers will need to be available on Wednesdays and Thursdays during office hours to provide this service. Volunteers will receive a script and an updated call list prior to making the calls each week.
Volunteers will be able to make the calls from our office (practicing social distance and current COVID-19 protocol) or from their home (will need to live close to the office less than 15 miles) each week.
Our mission is simple: serve patients and their families with excellent care, generous support, and compassionate attention. We help patients live each day to the fullest. We would not be Comfort Care Hospice without our volunteers. Our volunteers bring warmth, joy, and tenderness into the daily practice of caring for patients. If you enjoy helping people in need or find a sense of purpose in walking through trials with others, kindly contact us. We are always in need of compassionate, caring people with a heart to serve.
Patient volunteers interact directly with patients and their families, providing non-medical attention. Their time includes visiting with patients, offering comfort, listening to stories and memories, reading aloud, playing cards and games, helping with chores, or providing bereavement support.
Support volunteers touch patients lives by investing time into Comfort Care. These volunteers make crafts for patients, attend special events, help with projects or administrative needs, answer phones, and recruit other volunteers. Support volunteers are our behind-the-scenes champions.
