Companionship for hospice patients in Marshall County, AL
Thank you for considering volunteering with Encompass Health - Hospice! There are many opportunities for volunteers to serve hospice patients in Marshall County, AL. Your experience will be valuable, engaging, and make a huge impact to the patients and families we serve. NO medical experience needed, volunteers DO NOT perform "hands on" care.
At this time only volunteers that have been fully vaccinated for COVID-19 will be allowed enter patient’s homes.
Companionship volunteers are trained to go into a hospice patient’s home and provide non-medical support through socialization and companionship. Activities may include reading to patients, listening to music, playing cards, running errands, painting nails, or talking about interests! Your presence will give the patient support through socialization and companionship. Visiting/Companionship volunteers also can make deliveries for birthdays, special occasions, holidays, and more.
Volunteers are welcome to provide assistance during the day, after hours, or on weekends. Volunteer commitment is flexible to volunteer’s schedule.
We provide free training for all of our volunteers. Volunteers must complete the application and orientation processes, which include background screenings, a valid driver’s license, and proof of auto insurance and proof of COVID-19 vaccination. A 2-step TB skin test is required and will be provided by Encompass. Volunteers must have reliable transportation, must be dependable, and have the ability to complete written documentation.
Jr. volunteers ages 14-18 may volunteer as long as they are accompanied and supervised by an adult volunteer.
Please contact me if you think you would be interested in volunteering. I look forward to hearing from you today! Crissy H. Faulkner, BSW Volunteer Coordinator
