Hospice Volunteers - Making each day count! No one else provides the kind of services hospice does. By attending to the needs of both patients and their loved ones, hospice care can be a huge comfort for the entire family. Without the efforts of volunteers, hospices could not continue their important work. They allow hospice to provide services it otherwise could not offer. In addition, volunteers usually:
Keep the patient company The volunteer's presence can be extremely comforting to the patient, even if the volunteer only sits quietly in the room. Volunteers often read to patients or suggest activities they could do together. Family members may use this time for a much-needed respite.
Do chores around the house This helps take pressure off family members. Chores could be anything from walking the dog or raking leaves to helping with housekeeping or baby-sitting.
Run errands These might include: Picking up medical supplies Grocery shopping Provide physical care For example, volunteers may: Help the patient do things he or she can't do alone (dressing, bathing, etc.) Give massages, if licensed and permitted to do so
Volunteers also help out behind the scenes They support the hospice organization by: Typing and doing other clerical work Raising money Answering telephones Serving on advisory committees Coordinating support services
