ORGANIZATION: SouthernCare - Hattiesburg

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.

SouthernCare Hospice is looking for willing hearts to provide companionship and emotional support to patients with life limiting conditions and their caregivers. Our patients reside in nursing homes and assisted living facilities all over the Jones and Wayne County areas. How you serve and how often is completely up to you! Here are a few examples of how our Facility Volunteers serve:

  • Engage with our facility-based hospice patients through any of the following:
    • Provide companionship and emotional support.
    • Provide a listening ear.
    • Encourage them to share life experiences.
    • Play games (cards, board games, etc.)
    • Watch TV with them.
    • Read to them.
    • Sing/play an instrument to them.
You choose how you want to serve and how often.

WE ARE accepting volunteers amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. Our patients and families need help now more than ever during these uncertain times. Our volunteers are here to help meet non-medical needs of our patients, their families, and our SouthernCare staff. We are called to be a light in the darkness.

***Due to the requirements set by the Centers for Medicare/Medicaid Services (CMS), all volunteers are required to be vaccinated for COVID-19.***


NO medical experience is needed as volunteers DO NOT perform nursing duties or dispense medication. Please leave us your NAME, PHONE NUMBER and EMAIL ADDRESS so we can get in touch with you as soon as possible to discuss the benefits of being a SouthernCare volunteer!
