Our patients are on hospice care, end of life. They need comfort, companionship and a listening ear. After going through training, our volunteers visit patients for an hour each week - either in the patient's home, or in the patient's facility. It is a heartwarming relationship that makes a huge differents to both individuals.

Mission Statement

Our Mission is: To Provide Cost Efficient, Quality Healthcare Services To the Patients Entrusted to Our Care.

Description

We started with 24 offices of a privately held Hospice Company and were bought by Amedisys in 2011. We are national, publicly-owned company that includes Hospice, Health Care and Person Care. I am looking for volunteers that will visit our Hospice patients. Volunteers are extremely important to our organization, as they can often spend a little extra time with a patient building a unique relationship. It is rewarding to be invited into some ones life at the end. The volunteers must go through 16 - 20 hours of free training prior to visiting with patients. Many have said that this is one of the most rewarding experiences that they have ever experienced. You will cry, you will laugh and you will experience the best of the human spirit.
