Do you belong to a group that enjoys providing a service to individuals in need or are you an individual that wants to give back? Inspiration Hospice has several patients in need of new quilts or blankets. If you know how to make blankets or quilts, we would love your donations. Several of our patients are in their 80's and 90's and are usually cold due to their condition. We are always in need of new hand made quilts or blankets to donate to these wonderful people. Hospice patients have been given six months or less to live and have lost so much in their life. We try to make them as comfortable as possible during their last days. If you are interested in making these items and donating them to our patients, please contact me. There is no greater deed on earth then to give unselfishly of yourself.

Our volunteers offer terminally ill patients and their family’s comfort, support and companionship during a patient’s most challenging days, weeks, and months. Our volunteers report they are motivated by a desire to give something back, but soon find that the spiritual and emotional rewards they receive far outweigh the time and caring they contribute. Volunteer Opportunities Patient Care- providing emotional support and practical assistance that enhance the comfort and quality of life for patients/families/caregivers. These services include being available for companionship, listening, quiet company, and preparing meals. Respite Assistance- volunteers may offer their services to sit with a patient or simply be a presence in the home while providing family members or caregivers a break from patient care. Family members or caregivers may choose to leave the home or take a much-needed nap. Respite volunteers provide both the patient and the caregiver in the knowledge that someone else is in the home and the patient is not alone. 11 th Hour- spend time at the bedside while a patient is "actively dying" ensuring that no one dies alone. (special training provided) Qualifications Must be 18 years or older Have a valid driver’s license Submit to a TB test and criminal background check Have compassion and a genuine interest in helping those in need Able to work well with diverse populations Able to work alone and independently Good listening skills. Active listener Maintain and respect professional relationships Able to stay calm in stressful situations Self-motivated, flexible, and adaptable Must be able to commit to at least 2 hours per week for a minimum of 6-months

Do you have a big heart and time to share? We are currently looking for amazing volunteers to join us and make a difference in the lives of our patients. Some of these patients have no family and would be forever grateful for the time you could share with them. Imagine having your life cut short and having no one there to talk to. No one to share past memories with. No one to simply hold your hand and provide comfort. Who will be there for them? A hospice volunteer provides these services to our patients every day. We have several patients located in Salt Lake County, Utah County and Davis County that need a "last best friend." We take time and ensure that we match you up with a patient that shares your same interests, hobbies, etc. We want this to be as rewarding for you as it is for our patients. We are very flexible and try to work with your schedule so that every patient has a volunteer. We provide sixteen hours of training to ensure every volunteer is comfortable and fully prepared before any patient visits are made. Please make a difference and touch a life today. DUE TO COVID we have created the option to become a "pen pal" with our lovely hospice patients.
