Make a Positive Difference in your Community: Provide Comfort and Companionship!

As a Hospice Volunteer, you can support the patient and/or family in a variety of ways that suit your personality: provide companionship, encourage patient life review, take a patient for a walk, play a game, listen to music, watch a movie, be a spiritual support, vigil volunteer (sitting with someone who is actively dying), and/or participating in special projects. The possibilities are endless and we are flexible to fit your busy schedule!

Brookdale Hospice provides an individualized program of physical, emotional, and practical care for the patient, with an emphasis on pain control and symptom management. We emphasize comfort, dignity and respect, and we believe that centering our focus on both the patient and the family enables us to provide the best care.

**For Patient Safety: must be able to pass a drug screen, background check, and 2-Step TB test. Must be at least 18 years of age, and possess current driver's license and vehicle insurance (if you drive to patient's residence)**
