For our volunteers, there are a variety of opportunities to assist with our hospice patients. Some examples are: reading; writing letters; painting nails or doing hair; hosehold tasks; wheelchair walks; socializing; pet therapy; music therapy; message therapy.
Just as Corinthians 12 talks about many parts, but one body, each of our volunteers have many jobs, but one purpose - and that is to give back some of the blessings they have been given. We can (and do!) count the number of volunteers who have served, the number of hours that have been given, and even translate those hours into dollars. What is truly immeasurable is the difference that each of the volunteers has made to the residents and staff members. Presbyterian Homes is known for our Christian culture and high quality of life. This reputation has been built and grown over the years due to the volunteers and how they have faithfully served.
Meaningful and gratifying connections: Play an important part in the lives of clients, their families and other members of the hospice team.
Personal Growth: Enhance the skills abd abilities you already have and learn new ones through the valuable education opportunities available. Training is mandatory and volunteers can take advantage of Presbyterian Homes and Services on-going education.
