We here at Kindred Hospice in Seattle strive to improve the quality of life for our patients and families we serve through the delivery of compassionate care, clinical excellence, and extraordinary service. Kindred is recognized as the leader in home health and hospice services throughout the country. As a part of this nationwide provider, our local interdisciplinary team, is proud to offer services to the Seattle/King County community.
Kindred Hospice is a provider of end of life care, serving more people than any other Hospice provider in the country.
In Seattle, we have a small, personable and dynamic team of doctors, nurses, hospice aides, spiritual care providers and social workers, who serve to offer excellent care to our hospice patients and families.
Volunteers are an essential part of our interdisciplinary team, in the ways that they help to provide both administrative and in-home support. Kindred offers extensive training on end of life care to our volunteers.
I have tried several different volunteer organizations, looking for an opportunity where I felt I was doing actual meaningful work. Having been so lucky to end up volunteering with Gentiva Hospice, I have since stopped looking. With other locations, I felt anonymous, unneeded, or just plain in the way! But with Gentiva, I feel that all the staff are so passionate, caring, and genuine that I am finding myself growing and learning in compassion and work ethic every time I visit. In only the first month of volunteering, I learned so much from both patients and supervisors that I became certain I would volunteer with Gentiva for a very long time. I am humbled and honored to know these patients and staff members. And I appreciate all that I've had the privilege of being exposed to through Gentiva. For anyone looking for an experience that goes to the heart of what volunteer work is, please do consider applying. Thank you Gentiva!
I love volunteering with Gentiva Hospice! I have had the honor of spending time with amazing individuals in the care of Gentiva Hospice. As a volunteer I am able to create a schedule that works for me and build relationships with patients that matches my interests. I highly recommend volunteering with Gentiva Hospice and at volunteer meetings there are always yummy things to eat!
As a Nurse that works with Hospice patients, I highly recommend Gentiva Volunteer Services. Each volunteer goes through an extensive background check and training and comes highly reommended. My patients are always so grateful and love the companionship and services they provide.
