Have your ever felt that you had a calling to be of service to others? One way to fulfill this calling is to become a hospice volunteer. As a volunteer you will deeply touch the heart of an individual who is nearing the end of their life. At first glance, this might seem too sad or depressing. However, individuals who work with hospice patients report high levels of satisfaction and joy and often say that the most rewarding aspect is meeting new people and hearing their life stories. Typical responsibilities of a volunteer may including providing companionship, reading or playing board games, coloring or watching a movie. Volunteers are important members of the hospice team as they get to know their patients on a more personal level. Additionally, volunteers often provide relief to stressed family members or caretakers by lending an ear or giving them a much need break. Our Volunteer Coordinator provides comprehensive training and on-going support. Contact us today at Gentiva hospice and become part of a team of like-minded compassionate souls.
