Do you have a compassionate heart for others? Decatur Memorial Home Hospice is looking for volunteers to assist our patients. Volunteers play an integral role in the Hospice program, serving as listening ears and helping hands. These caring community members make a real difference in the lives of Hospice patients and their families. They serve a variety of roles in the Hospice program. While some enjoy visiting patients and families in the home setting, others prefer to assist in the Hospice office. You can decide what type of volunteer work suits you best.
Some of the services our volunteers provide:
- Companionship and a listening ear for Hospice families
- Providing short breaks for caregivers and families
- Writing cards or letters for the patient
- Recording life memories
- Assisting with light housework
- Grocery shopping or running errands
- Grieving with the family and offering emotional support
- Assisting with projects in the Hospice office
Memorial Home Hospice takes all necessary precautions to protect our Volunteers against COVID-19.
