About

Do you have 2 hours a month and want to make a difference? With New Century Hospice you can do exactly that by visiting with our hospice patients! New Century Hospice patients are all over Central Texas! Georgetown to Austin - all the way down to Bastrop and San Marcos and the outlying areas. Volunteers are currently mostly needed in the Kyle, South Austin, and Georgetown areas:)

Who our patients are: Individuals who have a life expectancy of 6 months or less - given their illness takes it's natural progression. And their loved ones.

Our Care: Is provided by our team where ever our patient's live. This can be in their own home, a family member's home, nursing home, assisted living, hospital, group home.

How does New Century make a difference? As a team (including volunteers), we start walking side by side with these individuals and their loved ones.... while providing comfort care from 3 different perspectives: emotional, spiritual, and physical.

How volunteers specifically fit in: Volunteers are friendly visitors who go in without an agenda. They visit with patients or/and may provide a break for a caregiver.

A little about our volunteers:

  • Do not provide any medical support like feeding, giving medicines, transferring
  • Do not need previous experience in the medical field or in volunteering
  • Do choose how often and where they want to volunteer
  • Once matched with a patient; volunteers are also matched with the hospice care team that also takes care of that patient and their loved ones
  • Come with diverse backgrounds. This includes age, work, families, thoughts, life styles, and where they live.
  • Complete our team!

How you can start making a difference:

  • Attend orientation: Either group orientation or individual, depending on where you live.
  • Contact me so we can talk.
Then....once you have been oriented and completed all requirements - you will be matched with a patient! If I have peaked your interest I would love to have you contact me:). Please Please include your phone number so I can call you! I look forward to hearing from you! Your Future Volunteer CoordinatorKatrina Wilson:)
