Volunteers Make a Difference!!

If you have a passion for caring for others and are looking for a way to make a difference in people's lives, consider becoming a hospice volunteer. Our volunteers are an important part of our hospice care team, helping to improve the quality of life for our patients, their families and their caregivers.

We are looking for great volunteers that are willing to assist in various capacities. Training is provided and volunteers are supervised by a volunteer coordinator and are supported by other members of the patient care team. Some examples of volunteer needs; offering companionship, playing chess, cards or board games, knitting or scrapbooking, providing support at time of death, veteran to veteran visits, making weekly "tuck-in" calls, making bereavement phone calls or visits, admistrative support and much more.

Mission Statement

We honor those we serve with compassionate home health, hospice and personal care services that apply the highest quality clinical practices toward allowing our patients to maintain a sense of independence, quality of life and dignity.

Description

No matter who you are, you've got something to offer to hospice patients. Typically, the needs are simple companionship and friendship, emotional support, someone to listen - but the small things you can do make an enormous difference in someone's life. Volunteers are supervised by a volunteer coordinator and are supported by other members of the patient care team. The Beacon Hospice approach to care creates a patient and family environment of home, comfort and dinity. This approach is extended through our volunteers, who are a vital part of the care team. We offer different types of volunteer options; direct care, indirect care, professional, bereavement and administrative. College students are welcome to apply to join our internship program enabling them to meet their school's internship requirement while giving back to their community. Some examples of ways volunteers can assist with patients are reading, writing letters, playing music or games, sitting quietly, listening, spiritual support and much more.
