Hospice volunteers share these characteristics--a compassionate heart and the desire to give back. Your support for patients and families facing end-of-life issues can be tailored to suit you in most cases. Work as little or as much as you wish. Training is in a comprehensive and flexible format which can be customized to work around your schedule.
There is a "No hands on" patient care policy for our volunteers, who provide companionship and support to patients and their families. Volunteers can provide brief respite support for the family caregiver; provide a smile and a listening, compassionate ear; play games; stream music; write letters; help put together a scrapbook, or write a memoir. If you are certified to provide pet therapy, music therapy, or art therapy, that is wonderful! Opportunities are available in patient or administrative settings.
For more information, please contact Connie Kling, Vol. Coordinator, call or text 520-576-4270, or call 520-615-3996. In your email response, I would appreciate you including your phone contact, as my email responses to your inquiry often go into your spam folder. I don't want to miss the opportunity to get to know you and grow as we work together.
