Volunteers are essential members of the patient’s hospice care team. Volunteers are trained to listen, care, and provide companionship for our patients during this important time in their lives. Through careful screening and orientation, our volunteers understand the hospice philosophy to provide as much comfort and quality of life to our patients as possible. They participate in the team visits which may include reading to patients, doing crafts, taking them outside in their wheelchair, accompanying them to a meal, writing letters, and sometimes simply by sitting quietly next to a patient’s bed. All of our volunteers are trained to provide companionship, and some of them bring extra areas of skill with them, such as massage, music, and energy work. A volunteer may also choose to help out with administrative tasks in the office.

Description

Home Hospice Volunteers: Home hospice volunteers serve patients in their homes, which may be a house, an assisted living facility, or an independent living facility. The volunteer generally provides caregiver respite and/or patient companionship. The schedule for these visits varies greatly, and is typically arranged between the family and volunteer, based on the family’s needs and the volunteer’s availability. The time commitment also varies, but a volunteer generally offers two to four hours per week to the family.

Nursing Facility Volunteers: Volunteers who visit our patients in nursing homes spend their time talking with them, reading to them, or just sit quietly in their presence.

Healing Arts Volunteers: Healing arts volunteers may be licensed massage therapists, have a pet who is certified to visit patients, practice aromatherapy, music therapy, a Reiki practitioner, or an art therapist. Healing arts volunteers may practice in patient homes or facilities.

Administrative Volunteers: Our administrative volunteers perform a variety of duties in our fun office, from assisting staff with mailings, answering phones, filing, making packets, special projects, or working on the computer.
