JSSA Hospice is looking for companion visitors to join our team, supporting hospice patients and families!
Volunteers may provide companionship at facilities or private residences, abiding by current COVID safety requirements.
Hospice Volunteers play an important role as part of JSSA Hospice’s interdisciplinary team by supporting a patient and their family at end of life. Whether this is done remotely or in person, hospice volunteers enhance the experience of patients and families with their compassion and supportive presence. They are vital in observing and noting signs of physical and emotional change in patients that the nursing, social work and spiritual care coordinators need to know, in order to provide the highest possible level of care.
Volunteers provide in person visits from initial admission to our service, to the last days and hours of life, sitting with patients and families, to ensure they are never alone. They bring comfort, respite, and companionship at a time when a compassionate presence is critically needed.
We are looking for all hospice volunteers, but are in need of volunteers in the Aspen Hill area, in particular. We serve a very diverse population of patients and their families in all areas of Montgomery County, and we look forward to hearing from you! Please ask our Volunteer Coordinator team about the many ways we are keeping our hospice volunteers happy, healthy and safe during COVID!
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
