Overview

Come join our Crescent Hospice Volunteer Team! Are you caring and compassionate? Do you have a passion for helping others? Then we would love to have you as a hospice volunteer! Simply provide your contact information, and our Volunteer Coordinator will reach out to you to discuss further details. Resume not required!

Crescent Hospice's volunteers are provided the preparation and training they need to comfortably and successfully complete their chosen assignments. Some volunteers receive additional training based on their selected area of service. Crescent Hospice has multiple office locations where we serve patients located in South Carolina. Our primary area is across all of South Carolina, from the Upstate, through the Midlands, and across the Low Country. This opportunity is in Beaufort.

Become a hero on your own terms
On your own time. In your own way. With your personality. Your ability to relate. Your own skills. Your way of solving a problem, sharing a story, or helping somebody remember important moments in their lives. If you are crafty, we can also use your help in making homemade gifts for our hospice patients! If you play an instrument, music is a beautiful way to bring therapy to a patient. If you have a therapy dog, we could use you and your furry loved one!

Crescent Hospice provides professional care with a personal touch. We accomplish this by focusing on both the patient and their family. We will treat the disease process with medical expertise while emphasizing quality living, not only physically, but also psychosocially, emotionally, and spiritually. Comfort, compassion, and calming presence are the gifts we bring to this service, and we are honored to walk with the patient and loved ones through this special time.

VOLUNTEERS ARE NOT PAID EMPLOYEES AND DO NOT RECEIVE COMPENSATION FOR THEIR TIME.

Responsibilities

Patient Care Volunteers are part of a patient’s care team. They make home visits to offer companionship for patients and relief for caregivers. Examples of patient care volunteer opportunities include reading to the patient, assisting with a hobby, listening, running errands, or grocery shopping.

Organizational Volunteers do not work directly with patients and families. Examples of organizational volunteer opportunities include working in our offices to support our care team or help patients and families through indirect support, such as assisting with our Transitions program, creating special memories for holidays, patient birthdays and anniversaries, planting flowers or mowing a yard for a patient that is unable to continue doing so, and helping with other needs of our patients and families.

Musician Volunteers are professional musicians, choir members, music students and teachers, board-certified music therapists, band members, and more, to share music and brighten up the days of all those we serve. As a Music Volunteer you will be able to provide a beautiful presence through the comfort of your music to our patients, and provide peace to our front-line healthcare staff.

Pet Therapy Volunteers are a wonderful way to share comfort and compassion through interactions with Certified Therapy Pets and Hospice Patients. A visit from a therapy animal can bring an immense amount of joy, emotional support, and fulfillment to a hospice patient and their family members. Pet therapy has been proven to decrease pain and stress. No hospice experience necessary but the animal must be certified and up to date on all vaccinations.

Veteran Volunteers have the unique ability to relate and connect with other Veterans, which is why they are vital to ensuring our veteran patients get the extra attention they deserve. Veteran volunteers provide companionship (conversation/sharing stories, playing games, etc.), caregiver relief (to give direct caregivers a break), compassionate listening, and participation in Veteran pinning ceremonies. Veteran volunteers have invaluable insight and may be able to give stress reduction techniques to patients/caregivers, help recognize PTSD in patients, and help patients/caregivers identify and process grief.

  • Understanding and supportive of hospice philosophy.
  • Compassionate person who is accepting and respectful of people's differences.

Mission Statement

Hospice is a passion - we are driven to provide compassionate, responsible, timely hospice services, always leading with dignity.

Description

Patient care and quality service are our highest priorities and primary reason for existence. We will be the leader in quality care in each community we service. Crescent will respond to referrals immediately, gather patient clinical data to evaluate for hospice eligibility, and if appropriate, admit the patient. We will provide compassionate, timely, and effective pain and symptom management to patients and offer support to their families, 24 hours a day. We recognize the special relationship between attending physicians and their patients, and we offer to provide those physicians regular patient status reports on any schedule they request. Telephone calls to our staff will always be answered promptly and politely. Trained staff aims to respond to urgent calls made to our after-hours call service within 15 minutes, 24 hours per day. We will address patient, family, or physician questions, issues or concerns within 24 hours of the appropriate staff being notified about the issue. We will care for our patients and their families with the same compassion, dignity, and respect given our own families. We regularly survey our patients, families, facilities, and physicians to ensure we are meeting our service commitment to the people, professionals and communities we serve.
