Vigil Volunteer

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: PIH Health Hospital

  • 1 person is interested

The purpose of the Vigil Volunteer is to connect our patients with a specially trained volunteer to sit vigil during their final hours. This may mean providing companionship for the patient by merely being present and sitting with them if there is no family or friends there to do so. It could also mean being available and providing support to family members who may need a break from the bedside of their loved one. Vigil Volunteers will be available on an on call basis, Monday-Friday, 1pm-9pm.
