HOSPICE SOCIAL MEDIA AND EDUCATIONAL INTERNSHIP: HINGHAM or REMOTE

Internship Outline: October 2023- June 2023

OVERVIEW & PURPOSE

An intern will work alongside the Social Media Manager and receive supervision from the Director of Volunteer and Social Media Services. The intern will work alongside the Social Media manager to increase awareness of New England Hospice along with awareness of related topics which include but are not limited to hospice, end of life, grief, bereavement, loss, Alzheimer's, cancer, emotional support, and supportive resources for families. The intern will also network and communicate with people to organize 1-2 virtual events per month. The intern will have the opportunity to develop special projects, which will meet the intern’s interest and the needs of the company.

The intern will go through an orientation and receive supervision. They will complete a project by the end of the internship. The intern will work with colleagues and supervisor to create a goal and a project of significance to the student and that they feel will benefit the company. The project will be decided and agreed upon within the first 2-3 weeks of internship. At the end of the internship, the student(s) will present the project they have completed.

If an intern wishes, an opportunity will be offered to the intern to visit patients and attend an Interdisciplinary Team (IDT) meeting with their supervisor. This may mean the intern will experience patient contact visits in nearby nursing facilities, which may include companion visitation, sitting vigil with patients, and/or providing support for patients and their families. This may include issues surrounding coping, grief and loss, education with disease and the dying process, and working with families after their loss to provide bereavement support.

Mission Statement

We are looking for those who would like to make a difference during a person and their family's experience during the end of their life. Any time that you may have could make a difference with our patients. We are a small family-run hospice company that operates throughout the state of Massachusetts. We are mainly in nursing facilities, which are divided into our areas (North, West, Central, South). The amount of patients in each facility varies and depending on your interest in volunteering (in-person or virtual) we can coordinate the best location for you. At this time we would like to ask for a minimum of 1 hour a week from our volunteers. This can be over the phone or in person visiting patients/families. If you are interested and would like to discuss the volunteer opportunities that we have here, please send an email with contact information and our volunteer coordinator will follow up with you.
