COMPANIONSHIP VOLUNTEER NEEDED FOR PATIENT

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Gentiva Hospice

  • 35 people are interested

Gentiva Hospice is looking for volunteers! If have an hour a week, you can make a significant difference in someone's life and improve your own as well. We currently have two volunteer opportunities open: Administrative Volunteers and Direct Care Volunteers.

Administrative Volunteers are needed to assist with office-related work: filing, organizational duties, assisting with mailings, and various other simple tasks. But if you would like to interact directly with patients, we have opportunities for making phone calls, and seeing patients in-person to provide support and companionship.

What does it take to be a volunteer? The biggest requirement is a desire to give your time, talents, and heart in support of hospice patients and their families. You will also complete a comprehensive volunteer training, receive TB testing, and undergo a complete a criminal background check and drug test.

We would love to find out what your passions and talents are and help you share them with individuals and families to improve their quality of life. We are very flexible and innovative and you will make your own schedule as we know that your time is important; if you have a gift, we will find a way for you to help!
