Beth Israel Lahey Health At Home is looking for dedicated and compassionate Vigil Volunteers to be with patients and families during the dying process. A Vigil Volunteer is a presence, compassionate listener, bringer of rituals, still and quiet. They are an invited guest into a most sacred and personal transition. They understand that this transition is physical and spiritual and that each situation or vigil is unique. Vigil Volunteers go to patients when the time of death is near. Their primary concern is the comfort of the patient.

Vigil Volunteers are a highly valued and vital part of our organization. You can use your gifts to impact someone in their last stage of life in many ways, and we will make sure you are well-trained, equipped, and supported.

Vigil Volunteers will typically work in the background, nurturing as needed. The dying patient may or may not know the Vigil Volunteer is there...and yet...there he/she is...a constant observer, someone to comfort, to calm and to care. Vigil Volunteering is a beautiful experience. You don’t have to do or be anything special... just be there. Embrace your compassionate self and know that this is always our patient’s journey into death, but it is also your journey in experience.

Mission Statement

Beth Israel Lahey Health is here to drive the change Massachusetts wants and needs. We’re doing things differently, but it’s more than that. We’re here to help our patients, their families, our communities and health care as a whole, be healthier.

Description

We offer programs to meet the complex needs of patients and their families coping with advanced illness. These programs include palliative care, bridge-to-hospice, hospice at home and residential hospice. The unique aspect of our care is that the bridge and hospice programs are coordinated by the hospice team, which assures that patients receive care from a care team with extensive experience and training in managing symptoms. This care team remains the same as patients transition to different levels of care.
