Bristol Home Care and Hospice Agency (BHCHA), serves residents of Bristol and all 12 surrounding towns.
We wonder if you are one who has good people skills and is willing use these to benefit hospice patients. If that’s you, please continue to read.
BHCHA is looking for adults who like helping others by being an attentive listener, a person who easily engages with others and meets them "where they’re at," knows when to remain silent and is comfortably able to "just be" with another.
Previous personal experience as a family member of a hospice patient is not required, yet is often what brings successful and excellent volunteers to choose this invaluable role of Hospice Volunteer.
Frequently, creative, out-of-the box thinkers (and intuitives) are successful in this volunteer role.
Some volunteers know that this specialty form of volunteering, hospice volunteering , needs to be part of their commitment to their community.
Hospice volunteers come with a breadth of lived experiences, interests, and skills and are willing to use these unique parts of themselves in helping hospice patients and their family. Currently, useful and needed abilities include: can effectively communicate in a language in addition to English; has a healthy sense of humor, a keen interest in sports, is a veteran, loves gardening, appreciates the arts in many forms, rides or has ridden motorcycles, is a talented repairperson. The value is that all of these abilities do not need to be found in one human. All are needed and whatever you bring, that’s perfectly enough!
Patient Care Volunteers offer patients companionship, a calming presence and conversation with patients and families. Complementary Therapy Volunteers (who are licensed or certified in their specific area) provide REIKI or Massage. Administrative Care Volunteers help with mailings, filing, or special projects during office hours (8:00 - 4:30).
