We need direct care support Hospice volunteers to meet and visit with Hospice patients and provide companionship, respite support and life review as needed. The training consists of 6 modules of online training, Liberty Volunteer Handbook and working with the volunteer program manager until you feel comfortable enough to be with a Hospice patient one on one.
If you have any questions, please contact, Volunteer Program Manager, Jewel S. Coates at Liberty Home Care and Hospice office at (434) 799-2308 or my work cell: (434) 709-4386 or by email: JCoates@libertyhomecare.com
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
About Liberty HomeCare & Hospice - Danville, VA

Liberty Hospice Mission Statement is to provide cost effective quality services that achieve optimal outcomes. At Liberty Hospice, we promote dignity and focus on quality of life. We help our patients and their families spend their time together in peace and comfort.
Do you like HELPING people? Do you want to give JOY to patients? Can you GIVE a few hours a month of your time? Then...come VOLUNTEER with LIBERTY HOSPICE in Danville, VA. (Also volunteers are needed in Alton, Axton, Blairs, Brosville, Callands, Cascade, Chatham, Dry Fork, Martinsville, Ringgold, South Boston and Sutherlin.)
The training can be done on the computer, on a DVD player or in the office with the volunteer coordinator, so whichever way you learn the best can be an option. The volunteer coordinator goes with you on the first three visits with your patient until you feel comfortable to be on your own. You sit and listen to the patient, read to them, write letters or do a life review to leave a legacy gift for their family. You could stay with the patient and allow the caregiver a respite support break to run to the store, doctor or hair appointment. The volunteer at Liberty Hospice is actually considered an employee, even though you don't make money... we could never pay the volunteer because our volunteers are PRICELESS. There is some paperwork that the volunteer fills out, but it is very simple and easy to understand.
