Hospice Volunteers Needed
Baylor Scott and White Hospice is actively seeking caring and compassionate volunteers to visit and offer companionship to hospice patients. Hospice patients are in the final stages of their lives, and regular visits from volunteers provide support and comfort. Having someone to talk to, sharing stories or even providing a quiet presence is incredibly valuable and makes a meaningful difference in their lives. Volunteers can also offer respite and downtime for the primary caregiver and other family members.
Activities hospice volunteers can do with patients include: talking, reading aloud, listening to music, watching TV/movies, writing letters, sharing stories, reminiscing about times in their lives, looking at photos, sewing/knitting, playing cards or board games, working puzzles, sharing time, etc. Volunteers are encouraged to share any special skills or talents with patients.
Volunteering an hour or more a week can make a lasting impact on the life of a hospice patient. We hope you will consider becoming a hospice volunteer and joining the Baylor Scott and White Hospice team.
