-Support Veterans at End of Life-
Please visit the new page to apply.
Veterans have done everything asked of them in their mission to serve our country, and we want to be there for them when they are faced with a life-limiting, terminal illness. We take great care to ensure America's veterans are properly covered and receive the care and attention they need and deserve. That's why our hospice is taking part in the We Honor Veterans program, a collaboration between the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization and the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Come join us in our mission to make a difference and help to improve our Veteran hospice patients quality of life, by providing compassionate presence and care to Kindred Hospice's Veteran patients and their families in the Jefferson City/ Columbia/ surrounding areas.
Come join our team as a volunteer! Volunteers are an essential part of our dynamic interdisciplinary team (of nurses, doctors, spiritual care providers, social workers and home health aides). Kindred Hospice of Jefferson City Volunteers may serve in a multitude of ways, including offering patient companionship (such as reading a book, engaging in conversation, actively listening by the bedside, playing card games, singing or holding someone's hand). Volunteers may also provide caregiver/family respite, or engaging in arts/crafts activity. Volunteers may also assist with special events such as memorial services and veteran pinning ceremonies for our hospice patients and families.
Kindred Hospice of Jefferson City Patient Care volunteers drive to visit and offer support to hospice patients and families. Whereas our Administrative volunteers come into the office to assist in administrative tasks.
We provide free extensive training and ongoing education and support for our volunteers. We value and nurture our volunteers as essential members of our interdisciplinary team. We seek a diverse volunteer team that reflects our multicultural community. Volunteer trainings occur in our office in the Jefferson City office. Our patients and families are located throughout the Jefferson City/ Columbia/ surrounding areas.
Qualified candidates must be at least 18 years of age, pass a background check, interview, fingerprinting, TB test, urine drug test, orientation training and orientation competency test.
To receive application materials or further information, feel free to contact the Volunteer Coordinator, Amy West at email@example.com or call (573) 469-4895. After your several application materials are received via email/mail, we will schedule an interview (either virtual or in person, depending on Covid-19 precaution measures at the time.)
However you choose to spend your time, thank you for the ways in which you offer kindness and service to others during this unprecedented time in our community.
