In-Person Hospice Patient Visits
ORGANIZATION: Enhabit Hospice
Please visit the new page to apply.
Enhabit Hospice is looking for individuals who can offer patient and family support through in-person visits. This can include (but is not limited to) visiting with patients in their home setting, providing companionship by listening to patient's stories and engaging in their interests, helping our hospice team understand the needs of the patient and family, providing respite time for the patient's primary caregiver, or sitting with patient and their loved ones in the last 24-48 hours of life.
No experience with hospice? No problem! In our orientation process, we will educate you on our goals and values so you can work with our team to bring the best care and comfort possible to our patients. While many believe hospice is primarily about death, it is actually about affirming the life a person currently has and helping them get the most out of their last moments.

About Enhabit Hospice
42 Bruyer Way, Kalispell, MT 59901, US
At Enhabit Home Health & Hospice, we believe hospice is not a place, but rather a philosophy of care. Our goal is to bring dignity and comfort home by offering compassionate care to patients and their families during the final stages of life.
Enhabit is looking for a volunteer to provide support for patients during their final months and weeks of life. Volunteers provide non-medical services and respite time for caregivers and family members. As a hospice volunteer, you will be given choices as to how much and what types of things you want to do.
A few ways you can help as a hospice volunteer is by running errands for patients and families, playing games or reading with patients, walking and caring for family pets, or even creating a photo album of the patient and their family.
