Hospice Friendly Visitor: Caring people, please apply!

Give back to your community by serving those who are in great need. Often isolated and socially cut off from the community, our patients really enjoy visits, especially by our volunteers who are there just for them. The best part of this opportunity is that you can arrange visits it to suit your schedule! You will be supported closely by our caring staff

If you love people, enjoy meeting new people, like to converse, and want to help others in need, this opportunity is perfect for you. No more than four hours per week is required. Training and ongoing support provided. A background check is required as well.

Volunteers are essential in achieving the Alliant Hospice Mission. We seek talented and passionate volunteers to serve as part of our professional interdisciplinary team, which includes a physician, nurses, social workers, CNAs, a Chaplain and others. The team works collaboratively to meet the holistic needs of our families and patients. The role of the volunteer is to enhance the lives of the patients through social interaction.

The Friendly Visitor volunteer visits the patient and family either in their home or facility. The Friendly visitor meets the needs of the hospice patient/family by providing companionship and support, writing letters or reading to the patient, visiting, offering simple comfort measures for a patient, light housekeeping and performing errands for the family, respite care, and incorporating activities based upon the patient’s interests and condition.

Visits can be scheduled to suit both the patient and the volunteer. Monthly online training and meeting via zoom are required. Reporting is required as well.

Remote work: We also seek help with data entry, photography, marketing, outreach, and communications, crafters, and more
