Join us for the last volunteer training of the year and spend the holiday season sharing your compassionate presence in simple companionship with the elderly. Those of us who work in hospice learn to look more closely rather than away, to lean in rather than withdraw, to allow the process to unfold rather than assert an agenda. Hospice companion volunteering is an opportunity to deepen your awareness of the healing presence we each have available to share in this moment, the only moment we truly have.
Spend 2 hours a week visiting a patient in their home. Weekly visits are extremely flexible and we assign you to visit a patient/family closest to where you live. We serve patients living in all PDX metro areas, outer SE, Gresham, Sandy, Troutdale, Lake Oswego, Tigard, Tualatin, Beaverton, Sherwood, Hillsboro, St Helen's etc.
The next volunteer training, comprised of 3 sessions, is scheduled for February 3rd, 4th, & 11th for approximately 21 hours of training. These sessions will be held at our home office in Tigard. Your volunteer visits will be in your community.
Volunteer roles include: companion volunteer, vigil volunteer, bereavement volunteer, musician volunteer, pet-assisted volunteer, massage therapy volunteer, Reiki, aroma therapy volunteer and more.
