Spiritual Care Volunteer for hospice patients in Marshall Co.

Thank you for considering volunteering with Encompass Health - Hospice!

We are seeking individuals of faith to serve and meet with hospice patients and/or their families to provide spiritual care. Volunteers are matched to patients of the same faith and spiritual background. Volunteers are welcomed to sing hymns, do devotions, and have prayer, etc. You will receive additional training and guidance by the Encompass chaplain. Laypersons of faith are welcome to volunteer. By being there, you will also give patients support through socialization and companionship.

Volunteers are welcome to provide assistance during the day, after hours, or on weekends. NO medical experience needed, volunteers DO NOT perform "hands on" care.

We provide a comprehensive, free training for all of our volunteers. Volunteers must complete the application and orientation processes, which include background screenings. Volunteer must have valid driver’s license, and proof of auto insurance. A 2-step TB skin test is required and provided at by Encompass. Volunteers must have reliable transportation, must be organized, the ability to multitask and complete written documentation.
