We are in need of 5 volunteers who can commit to a weekly schedule of coming into the DC office every Thursday starting at 11:00 am for 2-3 hours. Volunteers contact all patients or caregivers to inquire about such things as: patient's current level of pain and medication needs.
Training for the Tuck-In Program should take 2 hours. Training will involve Capital Hospice orientation, learning a script and role playing. Training happens every week for new volunteers.
Training (for new volunteers) and Tuck-in Program
As a new volunteer you will have to fill out an application and go through a background check before becoming a volunteer.
Patient Care training is a separate 2-day training totaling 15 hours.
Thank you in advance!
