Hospice Community Care - Richmond & Tri-Cities, The Peninsula, Middle Peninsula and Hampton Roads

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 2 people are interested

Traditions Health, d.b.a. Hospice Community Care, is actively seeking Friendly Visitor Volunteers to visit with our patients in Chester, Chesterfield, N. Chesterfield and the City of Richmond. If you don't have volunteer experience, it's okay because we will teach you!

Friendly Visitors are just what their name implies. Friendly Visitors visit with our terminally ill patients and they "bring the sunshine" with them. Some patients enjoy being taken outside (weather permitting) others just want to sit and talk or watch a classic movie on television. You may be able to play a game of checkers or a board game like Sorry! As a Friendly Visitor, you will be taught CDC protocols during your training and you will be expected to follow proper use of hand sanitizer and hand washing, mask usage and social distancing.

As a Friendly Visitor, you will need to complete an application, submit to a background check and a TB test. You will then need to attend volunteer training that complies with Covid-19 protocols. Once you are assigned to a patient, we ask that you visit a minimum of five hours a month.

Mission Statement

The mission of Hospice Community Care is to provide diginified end-of-life care and quality services that allow our patients and their families/significant others to live life richly, deeply and meaningfully for as long as it may last, and to die with dignity in the setting of their choice.

Description

Hospice Community Care has been providing excellent end-of-life care for terminally-ill patients living in the Richmond Tri-Cities area since 2004 and The Peninsula area since 2007.

Hospice Community Care uses an interdisciplinary team approach to provide the highest quality of hospice care to our patient's and their loved ones. Hospice Community Care has become the hospice provider of choice because of our reputation for impeccable customer service, friendly, knowledgeable and supportive staff offering unique delivery methods that meet the medical, physical, psychosocial and spiritual need of our patients and those that love them.

It would be impossible to meet all of the needs of our patients and those who love them were it not for our exemplary volunteers who donate hundreds of hours of their gift of time every year. We have several exciting opportunities to offer people who are considering volunteering with hospice.

Volunteers must have a current driver's license and proof of auto insurance as well as a clean driving record. Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age. We will train you for the volunteer opportunity that you are most interested.
