RSVP - Harry Hynes Memorial Hospice
Please visit the new page to apply.
Provide end-of-life support to patients and families through Harry Hynes Memorial Hospice. They have a very high need for volunteers and have a variety of roles to choose from! Most require specific training and are all very rewarding. All opportunities (except sewing) do require an education process with 9-12 hours of orientation which are divided into two to three sessions. All orientation sessions are completed in small group settings following CDC COVID-19 protocols. All volunteer opportunities with HHMH require being fully vaccinated against COVID, the flu, and passing a background check. Help with patient/family support, pharmacy delivery, clerical support, provide companionship/refreshments and office support at the inpatient unit, provide bedside comfort for those crossing over, help in the memory garden, provide education about HHMH at health/education fairs, sew/knit goods, or serve as a healing presence with the bereaved.

Assisting seniors, caregivers and persons with disabilities to achieve improved health and greater independence.
The RSVP Volunteer Program invites adults age 55 and over to use their life experience and skills to help older adults and strengthen our community in Sedgwick County. Volunteers give their time to support programming that reduces social isolation among older adults and provide nutritional support, among many other activities and initiatives. RSVP volunteers also improve and enhance the quality of the community organizations they serve. With RSVP, volunteers will receive appreciation gifts, recognition events, and may also qualify for the President's Volunteer Service Award. Active volunteers receive volunteer liability, excess automobile, and excess medical insurance to, from, and while volunteering.
