Dekalb County Hospice Volunteers
Please visit the new page to apply.
Hospice Volunteers may visit patients, provide temporary relief, and support grieving caregivers. Patients may be visited at their home, a facility, or the Supportive Care Unit at Randallia hospital. Tasks may include running errands, talking, reading, listening and providing emotional support to the hospice patient and family. Volunteers with special interests may record videos of patients sharing their life stories, entertain a patient by playing a musical instrument, do yard work, wash cars, do light house cleaning, put up holiday decorations or have a license or certificate to provide special care to patients. Vigil Volunteers visit patients that are nearing death. Our Vet to Vet program assigns volunteers who are veterans to visit patients that are Veterans. Volunteers certified in pet therapy may visit with their animals.
For those volunteers that may not want to directly visit patients, but still would like that sense of connection, we offer volunteer phone calls to patients, as well as letter writing for companionship and encouragement.
Volunteers also perform a wide variety of office and support functions such as answering phones, typing, assembling mailings, filing, assisting with fund raising and public relations projects.
