Coming Home Hospice has many ongoing volunteer opportunities. I volunteer in the kitchen, and if you love you cook for people, this is the volunteer job for you! We cook for about 15 patients plus guests and staff, so we can personalize meals and make them special. I get to create desserts and soups in addition to helping with the main meal, and my creativity is always appreciated.
The staff and the hospice have been there forever, and they adopt you the moment you arrive. There is a very cozy, positive atmosphere that always makes me feel good.
In addition to the patient care and kitchen positions, they also need receptionists to greet people and answer the phone. That position is good for someone who wants to help, but also would like some time to catch up on reading or homework.
Just a few hours a week is all it takes! The application process can take a while because you must get blood and TB tests, but you can do it all in the hospital at no expense to you.
