Direct Patient Care Volunteers provide practical help and emotional support to terminally ill patients and their families. As a volunteer with Community Hospice of Texas, you will serve both patients and families wherever the patient calls home. Typically, volunteers visit a patient once a week for 2-3 hours.

Assignments are made as close to your home/office as possible. Volunteers are given choices of who they visit and where they go.

An initial volunteer orientation is required of all Community Hospice of Texas volunteers. Training and support programs are offered on a regular basis, to ensure that your service experience is meaningful and rewarding. There is no cost for training, and sessions are offered throughout the year.

Some things that a Direct Patient Care Volunteer might do:
-
Make regular home visits to offer companionship and socialization.
-Stay with the patient so the caregiver can run errands.
-Provide opportunities for the caregiver to rest.
-Serve as a willing and sensitive listener.
-Interact with the patient by reading, playing games, or doing arts and crafts.
-Assist around the house with preparing light meals, walking the dog or making telephone calls.
-Run errands such as grocery shopping or picking up prescriptions.

*** NOTE: At this time, we are in need of volunteers that can work during the day, not just in the evenings and weekends.

If you are interested in learning more about becoming a Direct Patient Care Volunteer, please contact the Volunteer Coordinator, at (214) 920-8450.
