Volunteers are treated like employees with the exception of receiving financial payment. Kindred strives to provide comfort, compassion, dignity, and peace to terminally ill patients and their families through a holistic approach to physical, spiritual, and emotional care by professionally trained hospice teams and specialized community resources. Our volunteers are a part of that team. The volunteer’s role in hospice care includes patient/family and/or administrative support. Volunteers can provide direct support in the patient’s home or a nursing facility with the purpose of companionship and/or caregiver relief. Some volunteers help the family/patient celebrate special occasions like birthdays, anniversaries, and holidays. Administrative volunteers primarily work in our hospice office filing and/or assisting with mailings.
