If you are looking for an opportunity to provide some companionship and make a difference in people's lives, consider volunteering with us!

Companionship can include any of the following options:

  • Sitting and talking
  • Playing games
  • Writing letters
  • Reading
  • Playing music
  • Listening to a patient tell stories
  • Running errands
  • Providing light housekeeping
  • Providing a break for the caregiver

Any time spent with them is greatly appreciated by patients and their family.

Patient companionship can also provide respite for caregivers, if they need a break to go run errands, get groceries or just have some alone time after caring for their loved one all day.

FAQ's:

  1. Can I choose which companionship activities I'd like to do? Yes!
  2. Can I volunteer around my work/school schedule? Yes! Patients can have visitors throughout the days, evenings and weekends.
  3. How often would I need to volunteer? As often as you'd like. You can do once a month, twice a month or weekly if you'd like
  4. Can I shadow someone first to see if it would be a good fit? Yes, email me and we can set this up!
  5. How long would I have to commit to volunteering? As long as you'd like.
  6. Is medical training required? No.
  7. Would we have to do any personal care for the patients (including eating, bathing, etc)? No. This is not allowed to be done by our volunteers.
  8. Do we have to be vaccinated? Yes.
  9. Do we have to have a valid drivers license and car insurance? Yes.

About Rivercross Hospice

Location:

Mission Statement

Rivercross Hospice is dedicated to providing and promoting the best quality of care for patients and families facing end-of-life issues.

Description

What is Hospice?

Hospice manages pain, controls symptoms, and understands that emotional and spiritual stresses are as significant as physical pain.

The Hospice Team supports and comforts terminally ill patients and their loved ones. Hospice is not about death, but rather about the quality of life as it nears its end. It is not a place to send people to die and it is not about last-minute hospital care.

Rivercross Hospice treats the whole person, not just the disease, providing care for the mind, body and spirit. The Hospice Benefit is not just for the patient. We also provide care and support for the family and loved ones during their time of need.

Hospice offers dignified living at the end of life.
