Mission Statement

At Encompass Health, we believe hospice is not a place, but rather a philosophy of care. Our goal is to bring dignity and comfort home by offering compassionate care to patients and their families during the final stages of life.

Description

Encompass Health is looking for volunteers to assist with indirect patient care by mailing cards/letters, deliver supplies, assist coordinator in office, and other possibilities in the future to assist patients during their final months and weeks of life. Volunteers provide non-medical services and respite time for caregivers and family members. As a hospice volunteer, you will be given choices as to how much and what types of things you want to do.

A few ways you can help as a hospice volunteer is by running errands for patients and families, playing games or reading with patients, walking and caring for family pets, or even creating a photo album of the patient and their family. (Direct patient care will start back when covid restrictions are lifted).
