Job Description-patient /Family Volunteer

Come join our team and be the someone for someone!

Hospice Volunteers are essential members of our hospice team. They are members of our community who have a heart for people. Our volunteers enrich the lives of patients and families through the delivery of safe, compassionate care and support. Volunteers help fill the gap in companionship experienced by many individuals living in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, or are home-bound due to their life-limiting illnesses. Volunteers choose their assignments and visit patients in the volunteer’s community.

Each patient is unique and volunteers can improve the patient’s quality of life through personalized delivery of assistance. Volunteer activities may include playing games, coloring, reading, writing for the patient, playing music, sitting at the bedside, watching TV/ movies, and active listening. Volunteers may also provide caregiver relief for families. Caregiver relief is when a volunteer visits with a patient while the caregiver takes some time away from caregiving duties to run errands or go to appointments.

We do a criminal background check. We will give training. All are done with no cost to the volunteer.
