ORGANIZATION: Residential Hospice
Please visit the new page to apply.
Are you kind and friendly and looking to help others in your community? Are you patient and empathic, and willing to share those gifts with others during a difficult time? If so, we may have an opportunity that's a perfect fit for you!
Residential Hospice is seeking dedicated Patient Support Volunteers to help patients and families through their end-of-life journey. Hospice patients have a terminal diagnosis and a limited life expectancy, and they and their loved ones are often dealing with many emotional stressors while in the care of hospice.
Our volunteers provide comfort, companionship and friendship to patients in a nursing facility or at home. Volunteers may engage with patients in variety of ways depending on the patient’s needs. These activities can range from reading aloud, doing puzzles, or attending facility activities with the patient to simply listening to music, talking or holding a hand. Volunteers also may provide a respite for caregivers who are caring for a loved one. Volunteers sit with a patient while the caregiver can take time for themselves.
As a Hospice Patient Support Volunteer, your presence and support can make an impact for our patients and their families. If this seems like something that would be a good fit for you, we’d love to hear from you.
Drug test, health screen, TB test, and fingerprinting are also required. We ask that volunteers make one year commitment or longer.
Disclaimer: We are sorry but we can not accept any court ordered community service.
*No prior experience required. Training provided.
