Brighten a Hospice Patient's Day in Lee's Summit

Amedisys Hospice

Do you have a heart for bringing caring and happiness to others? Would you enjoy the opportunity to brighten a hospice patient’s day - and provide much-needed respite for their caregiver? If so, Amedisys Hospice would love to have you consider joining our hospice volunteer team!

Time commitments and roles vary, depending on patient needs and what you feel is the best fit for you.

You might visit patients at their homes or in facilities -- or write cards or make phone calls to patients from your home. You might read to a patient, share your musical talents, play games, do crafts, or help them document their life memories for family. Or you might just sit with the patient to provide a comforting, caring presence. There is room for creativity!

Some families might need help with household activities like running errands, walking pets or other tasks to help keep things running smoothly. (We also have administrative and outreach opportunities if that is a better fit for you.)

If bringing joy and comfort to others brings YOU joy, please contact us to learn more about becoming a hospice volunteer. Volunteers must be at least 16 years old and complete an interview and background check. Contact Laura O’Brien at laura.obrien@amedisys.com to learn more!

Description

WHY AMEDISYS?

Every day of life matters. At Amedisys, we view hospice services as a means for allowing people to make the very most of their time, even when faced with life-limiting circumstances. This compassionate care is provided in the comfort of your own home - wherever you call home. Our care is about people helping people, and our team of hospice experts goes to great lengths to help our patients and their loved ones live each day to its fullest. Our approach is so much more than our experienced medical guidance. We foster genuine personal connections that offer emotional, psychological and spiritual support - taking an active role in the interests that bring joy.

Volunteers are essential members of our hospice team. Ask any of our patients, and they’ll likely tell you the volunteers who visit them touch their hearts. They look forward to the visits and the compassionate caring volunteers bring.

If you have a passion for caring for others and are looking for a way to make a difference in people’s lives, consider joining our Amedisys Hospice volunteer team. We have offices in Kansas City, Missouri and Lenexa, Kansas and serve patients on in our region on both sides of the state line. Your passion and talents
