Compassionate Callers Needed for Hospice Program!
ORGANIZATION: Traditions Health of Biloxi
Please visit the new page to apply.
The Tuck-In Caller Volunteer (TICV) fills a crucial need in helping to identify patient and family needs prior to going into the weekend period. Placing phone calls to patient homes to ensure that supplies (e.g., adult diapers, wipes, hand sanitizer, etc.) are sufficient to get the patient and family through the weekend, allows the staff to be available for more pressing needs that may arise during the weekend. Thursday afternoon calls help avoid placing undue stress on the family and care team members because it allows time for planning and for a patient’s needs to be met by staff during Friday’s schedule, if possible. Working in a healthcare setting, there is strict adherence to confidentialities/HIPAA. Ongoing training is provided.
Expect a rigorous background (fingerprints required) application process, and training required for healthcare settings. But ask yourself, "Would I want anything less for my family member, with a volunteer in my home with vulnerable loved ones?"
