ORGANIZATION: Enhabit Health - Hospice

Mission statement

At Enhabit Hospice, we believe hospice is not a place, but rather a philosophy of care. Our goal is to bring dignity and comfort home by offering compassionate care to patients and their families during the final stages of life.

Description

Enhabit Hospice is looking for a volunteer to provide friendship to patients during their final months and weeks of life. Volunteers provide non-medical services and respite time for caregivers and family members. As a hospice volunteer, you will be given choices as to how much and what types of things you want to do.

A few ways you can help as a hospice volunteer is by running errands for patients and families, playing games or reading with patients, caregiver respite, walking and caring for family pets, or even creating a photo album of the patient and their family.
