Mission Statement

Hospice: It’s at the Heart of What We Do. Amedisys delivers individualized, compassionate hospice care and support for our patients and their families. Our support system of medical, social, psychological and spiritual services promotes dignity and affirms quality of life. As a hospice professional, you have the opportunity to allow patients to live each day of their lives to the fullest. Apply today to join our family and provide comfort and support to those who need it the most.

Description

Hospice is compassionate care and comfort toward the end of life. Ask any of our patients, and they’ll likely tell you the volunteers who visit them touch their hearts. They look forward to the visits and the compassionate caring volunteers bring. If you have a passion for caring for others and are looking for a way to make a difference in people’s lives, consider becoming a hospice volunteer. What Does a Hospice Volunteer Do? The activities you will do may be many and varied: from reading at a patient’s bedside, knitting lap blankets, running errands, helping with administrative duties, and providing emotional support for the patient/family such as providing breaks for family and friend caregivers. Don't Worry About Training! Becoming a Hospice Volunteer can feel like a big step, and we’re here to help. That’s why we support all our volunteers with an orientation and training program that helps you know what to do. Who Can Volunteer? It’s our philosophy that Hospice Volunteers are part of our caregiver team. To maintain quality care for our patients and families, we have a few requirements of our hospice volunteers such as a background check, references, a statement of health and a commitment to serve for 1 -4 hours a week for six months.
