Please visit the new page to apply.
Want to engage your heart, mind and spirit? Consider becoming a Hospice Volunteer with Rivercross Hospice Volunteer program. Our Volunteers are vital members of the hospice patient’s care team. Volunteers are trained to listen and provide companionship for our patients during their end-of-life journey. Through screening and orientation, our volunteers understand the hospice philosophy; to provide as much comfort and quality of life to our patients as possible.
Volunteers provide companionship in many different ways; reading to patients, doing crafts, taking them outside in their wheelchair, accompanying them to a meal, playing cards, writing letters, and sometimes just sitting quietly next to a patient’s bedside. Some Volunteers even bring an extra area of skill with them, such as haircuts, music, and pet therapy.
It is our goal to provide a volunteer for every patient who would like companionship. We are always looking for passionate, caring people who would like to give a part of themselves in this capacity. All who are interested can contact the Rivercross Volunteer Coordinator via email, firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Volunteer Department 918.622.9281
