Compassionate Hospice Companion Volunteer

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Good Samaritan Society Hospice

  • 2 people are interested

This volunteer supports and assists the patients and families in a variety of home settings. Patient care volunteers spend their time with hospice patients. Volunteers travel to the place where the patient currently lives. This could be the patient’s home, a nursing home, or a long-term care facility. Volunteers do not provide any medical or hands-on care. They simply spend time with the patient, talking with them and keeping them company. Volunteer also often play the patient’s favorite games with them, like cards or chess. Volunteers may also talk with patients about current events, watch a television show or movie, if that’s something that the patient is interested in.

In home volunteers provide a vital service for the hospice patients. They’re able to give patients someone who will listen to their stories and talk with them. This type of volunteering is perfect for compassionate, empathetic people who want to help patients who are at the end of their life.
