Hospice Friendly Bedside Visitor
40 people are interested
Life Source Hospice provides services to patients who reside in a Bergen County (NJ) nursing home or at their own home. Volunteers primarily serve as friendly visitors to elderly terminally ill patients. Depending on the patient's functioning level, the volunteer may listen/speak to the patient, read, write letters, pray, or watch TV with the patient. Volunteers may also interact with the patient's family members.
Volunteers are expected to visit patients 2 hours a week, during the daytime in the work week or weekend (volunteer can choose).
Volunteers are requested to submit brief patient notes, one day after visitation.
Training and ongoing supervision is provided by experienced healthcare professionals.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
We'll work with your schedule.
