ORGANIZATION: Notre Dame At Home

Image_202106041303

Notre Dame Hospice Care provides comfort, compassion, companionship, and support to patients nearing end of life and their families, when a treatment or cure for an underlying disease is no longer available. Services are delivered by an interdisciplinary team of healthcare professionals who focus on addressing physical, psychological, social, and spiritual needs to improve quality of life.

Under the guidance and supervision of the Hospice Interdisciplinary Team, many volunteers opt to work directly with our clients in 1:1 or group settings. Opportunities are available for those seeking a different experience as well, including office assistance and more.

Hospice care volunteers offer their time and talents to provide patients and their families with compassionate care and support as they face their serious illness, life-limiting illness, or end of life. Volunteers can also assist the organization with daily operations in the office setting. There are a multitude of ways that your talents can help support our programs.

  • Visit and provide companionship
  • Specific tasks, prepare meals, run errands, read, or help with household chores
  • Offering a supportive and caring presence to the patient and family
  • Respite for the family
  • Childcare, reading to the patient, playing cards/games
  • Office support- filing, answering phones, mailings
  • Gardening
  • Massage
  • Crafts
  • Knitting/quilting crocheting
