One of the most frequent requests for respite support is from those families who would like to attend their church's Sunday Service or Bible Study, but are unable to leave their loved one unattended.
Do you have free time on Sundays to help fill this need?
Respite Care Volunteers provide companionship to a hospice patient while giving the family member/s a break from their daily caregiving duties. These volunteers provide a supportive presence to those who cannot be left alone.
Respite Care Volunteers may be requested on an "as needed" basis or for regularly scheduled visits for a minimum of a 2 hour time frame per visit.
Note: Volunteers are not expected to assist with any personal cares (feeding, dressing, administering medications, etc.)
This position requires professionalism, sound judgment, effective communication skills, compassion and, most importantly, dependability.
