Affinity Care Hospice’s mission is to provide the terminally ill patient and their loved ones with the support and care they require to live their lives comfortably. Our Hospice team strives to enable the patient and family to maintain dignity and quality of life. Our goal is to provide physical, emotional, and spiritual comfort. We strive to empower the patient and family by providing ongoing support for family and friends for as long as it is needed.
We believe that Hospice care should be available to all persons with an illness for which there is no cure or for persons who elect not to attempt a cure, resulting in a limited life expectancy.
Title/position: General Volunteer
Duties/Expectations: Our team of Social Workers, Nurses, Aides, Counselors, and Volunteers come alongside and help with cares and concerns the family has during this difficult time. As a volunteer you have the opportunity to get to know the families and patients on a personal level. We have several opportunities to help with patient directly or indirectly:
- Provide Companionship to the patient and/or caregiver one to two times a month. At this time this can be through phone calls or in person visits for our facility patients and in person visits for our home patients.
- Pick up groceries/supplies for patients and families and deliver them
- Deliver blankets to patients in facilities and at home through our Affinity Care Blanket program
Time commitment: 5 hours a month
Qualifications and requirements: Familiarity with end-of-life care is a plus but not a must. Orientation is approximately 2 hours and is all online. You need to have a passion for helping others who just need someone to listen to them or be there for them. Must preserve confidentiality of client identity and information. A Background Check and TB Screening are required, which are all paid for by Affinity Care Hospice & Palliative Care. Also must have a valid drivers license and car insurance.
Benefits: You can make a difference in the lives of patients who are going through the final stages of their life. You will also be a comfort to the family knowing their loved one has someone visiting with them and making sure they are not alone.
