Companionship for Hospice Patients
ORGANIZATION: Constellation Health Services
Please visit the new page to apply.
Hospice volunteers give their time and talents to help the patients and families served by Constellation Health Services. Volunteers perform many important duties. Whether providing companionship in a patient’s home or facility, volunteers play a vital role that enables the hospice to more fully meet the community’s needs. Volunteers provide companionship to both the patient and family caregiver. They are a caring, friendly face for conversation, reading, playing games, watching TV, listening to music, and sharing stories. Volunteer visits may also offer respite to the family caregiver, who can take a break from caregiving while the volunteer is visiting. Constellation patient visit volunteers need not have any special abilities, all we ask is for reliability and compassion. However, we are open to trained Reiki Masters, pet therapists, musicians, etc.
Masks, hand sanitizer, and other PPD provided.
