Have you ever experienced a personal loss and/or feel you can lend an ear to others experiencing the loss of a loved one?

Good Shepherd Hospice is looking for Bereavement volunteers to help our chaplains and social workers support those who have lost someone dear to them. Volunteers will send sympathy cards, assist the chaplains/social workers and make calls or visits to bereaved family members to lend a shoulder and an ear to those experiencing loss. Bereavement volunteers are extensively trained to in the concepts of end of life care and peer support for the loved ones of someone who has died.

Volunteers must be 18+ and willing to attend training and undergo a background check before working with patients and their families. This is an excellent opportunities for those considering medical or spiritual pathways or retired individuals who would like to support others!

Mission Statement

Description

COMPASSIONATE ABOUT CARE. passionate about life.

At Good Shepherd Hospice, we believe that health care is more than just a diagnosis and a treatment. It is a daily exercise in making this moment...this today...the very best it can be. We're here to help our patients achieve that goal - physically, mentally, spiritually... and for whatever that means individually.

We believe that in the passing of a person's life, there are also extraordinary opportunities for compassion, reconciliation, spiritual healing, and renewal.

Our volunteers play a vital role in our Hospice program. From working in the office, to creating special projects at home, to visiting to provide companionship and ease loneliness, Good Shepherd Hospice Volunteers make special moments happen again and again for the patients and families we serve.
