Vigil Volunteer
Provide comfort when it's needed the most.

AseraCare Hospice has an ongoing need for volunteers who fulfill the mission that "no patient dies alone". The volunteer's role is to provide a calming presence for patients who are actively dying, often playing music quietly on a CD or instrument, singing, reading poetry or from scriptures, or just sitting quietly, holding the hand of the patient. Volunteers sit with the patient and family anywhere from 1 to 4 hours and receive training on all aspects of hospice with a special emphasis on the last hours.
