  • 1 person is interested

We are looking for volunteers willing to spend time visiting with patients in nursing homes and patient residences. The ideal volunteer is willing to spend time with patients talking, reading, and generally providing companionship and emotional support. No medical training is needed or required as volunteers do not provide hands on care.

Due to facility and Encompass Health requirements, volunteers need to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 and need to be at least 18 years of age.

If you are interested in this opportunity please contact Michelle Miller at (256) 831-2110 for more information, I am happy to answer your questions!

Mission Statement

At Encompass Health, we believe hospice is not a place, but rather a philosophy of care. Our goal is to bring dignity and comfort home by offering compassionate care to patients and their families during the final stages of life.

Description

Encompass Health is looking for hospice volunteers to provide both administrative and patient facing services and visits to patients during their final months and weeks of life. Volunteers provide non-medical services and respite time for caregivers and family members. As a hospice volunteer, you will be given choices as to how much and what types of things you want to do.

A few ways you can help as a hospice volunteer is by running errands for patients and families, playing games or reading with patients, walking and caring for family pets, or even creating a photo album of the patient and their family.
