Do you have a heart for people? Do you especially enjoy the elderly? Are you looking for ways to reconnect in the community?

If so, we have opportunities in various locations/areas for you to provide companionship for our patients. Just an hour or two per week makes such a big difference in someone's life.


The Role of the Tuck-In Volunteer
The tuck-in volunteer role is a vital one to the hospice team. The tuck-in volunteer offers phone
support to patients who reside in a private residence or in a facility. Our goal is for each patient
who may be fragile, anxious or who has had a change in the level of care, to receive a tuck-in
call prior to the weekend. Tuck-in volunteers provide support to hospice patients and staff by
conducting phone calls to patients/families to assure they have the necessary supplies,
medications, and/or support.

Essential Functions Include:
* Review request and assignment with referring case manager, patient care manager (PCM)
and/or volunteer coordinator
* Make telephone contact or visit patient location: home, inpatient facility, nursing home,
group home, and assisted living.
* Provide emotional support to patient/family as appropriate
* Provide RN Case Manager, PCM and/or volunteer coordinator of identified patient needs
* Understand limitations of the role of the volunteer in this capacity and refer to
appropriate team members as necessary
* Initiate communication to appropriate staff when concerns arise
* Document interventions provided

Service Areas: Alleghany, Rock Bridge, Nelson, Amherst, Appomattox, Bedford, Botetourt, Craig, Campbell, Montgomery, Pulaski, Floyd, Franklin, Henry, Pittsylvania
