Companionship

Volunteers are an essential part of the Compassionate Hospice Care team and have the opportunity to make a meaningful difference in the lives of our patients and their caregivers. Your time is needed and valued.
We offer a variety of ways to volunteer:

  1. Companionship: talking with a patient, reading, card games, writing letters.
  2. Caregiver respite: providing a break for a family member to take care of their own needs.
  3. Volunteer with your dog and provide pet therapy
  4. Sing or play an instrument for a patient and/or caregiver
  5. Provide Massage, Reiki or Comfort Touch
  6. Hospice administrative support
  7. Bereavement support

Veterans, musicians, therapist are welcomed! No experience is required, just a willing and compassionate heart. Time commitment would be 1-2 hours per month, or more if you are available. These hours count towards volunteer requirements for educational or legal purposes.

Mission Statement

Compassionate Hospice Care is guided by a tradition of personal and clinical excellence. We believe that serving patients, their families and caregivers with compassionate and life-affirming end-of-life care in the community setting is the most important activity of the organization. The hospice team reflects a spirit and idea for caring that emphasizes comfort, dignity and respects autonomy for each person.

Description

Compassionate Hospice Care is looking for dedicated volunteers who desire to provide companionship and comfort to those receiving hospice care and offer tangible support to those caring for them.

No experience is necessary. Volunteers are provided with an interesting and practical orientation. Essential characteristics of an effective volunteer include compassion, dependability, trustworthiness, patience and flexibility.

If you have recently experienced the death of a loved one, you may serve administratively in our office but need to wait 13 months post your loss to serve as a companion to patients.
