Volunteering

We are Preferred Hospice and we want YOU to be a part of our volunteer program while you finish school and beyond! Our families are on a special journey with their loved ones and just need a break sometimes. The volunteer role looks like this:
*Sitting with our patients.
*Getting to know them.
*Comforting them.
*Engaging with our precious patients through conversation, activities they love, reading to them, showing real interest in them, validating them and loving on them.
*Documenting each visit with a patient or in the office.
*Communication with the Volunteer Coordinator

There is no patient care. But if being bedside someone in that process makes you uncomfortable, we also need volunteers in our office a couple hours a week as well. We do understand!

NO experience necessary!
Your mileage is paid as well!

Things that are a must:
*Passing our background checks
*Passing our drug screen
*Yearly TB tests
*Short orientation to get you up to speed and do the paperwork
(And we can be flexible to help you get everything accomplished, so you are up and running!)

And we do take all necessary precautions when going to nursing homes or wherever they call home (masks, if required, frequent washing of hands, etc). If you've had the covid vax, please bring your card with you so we can put it on file. But the vaccination is not required.

So if you have a heart of compassion for others, please reach out to our Volunteer Coordinator, Ann Blake at (417) 581-4968 or at ablake.oz@preferredhospice.com. She is excited to meet each of you and give great tips for helping our sweet people through their journey!
