At Mary T. Hospice, we are firm believers that our patients and their families come first as well as to provide excellent service during this transitional period by accommodating the whole family unit with compassion and care.
While we know that "it takes a community to raise a child", it takes that same community to care for our seniors. At Mary T. Hospice, we are constantly looking at how we can give back to the communities that we serve.
Volunteering plays a vital role in the Hospice program, and you as a volunteer, can play a key role. We are intentional in matching patients/families with our volunteers. We strive to provide comfort and excellent care to create the best experience as possible for everyone involved.
We look to our volunteers to provide a variety of support services to our patients. Hospice Volunteering is not something to be afraid or fearful of. Some examples of what our volunteers can do for our patients are:
- A volunteer who reads to a patient whose vision has diminished.
- A volunteer who sits beside, engaging in conversation or just to sit and provide company to the patient.
- A volunteer who can create crafts with our patients who are able to do so. This may look like: coloring, folding papers, making safe jewelry (bracelets, necklaces).
- A volunteer who can participate in a game of checkers or other forms of games, i.e.: card games.
In addition to the roles that volunteers can partake in, at Mary T. Hospice we also have volunteers who have a valid license for an emotional support or therapy pet (approved for visits) and have volunteers who play instruments and/or sing. Or those who can provide emotional and spiritual support. Furthermore, we have trained volunteers who sit bedside when someone is at the very last stages of life. This training will be provided to all volunteers.
Each of these volunteer roles bring another level of quality care and comfort to our patients and families at the end of life. As a volunteer, you will give the amazing gift of compassion and often when you give this gift, you also get compassion in return.
If you have any questions about our Hospice Volunteer program, please let me know.
