Caring is at the heart of everything we do, especially when walking you through life’s final chapters. When family, friends, loved ones and referring physicians entrust us with your care when you are nearing the end of your life, we always strive to assure that you spend your remaining days in exceptional comfort and with the utmost dignity.
Volunteers play a vital role in our ability to provide hospice services. By volunteering a few hours or days a month you can make a difference in the lives of the patients and families we serve. As a volunteer you can choose to work with hospice patients and their families or in administrative activities at the hospice office.
A person who volunteers is trained for the area in which they choose to serve and are under the direction of the hospice staff member responsible for the volunteer program.
There are two major areas in which to volunteer with different job titles within those areas.
1. Administrative/Non-Patient Care Volunteer is a person who wants to volunteer but desires no direct patient contact. They may provide administrative assistance in the hospice office. There are non-patient care volunteers who can assist with yard work, running errands and other helpful activities.
2. Patient Care Volunteer is a person who wants to volunteer directly with patients, whether it is in the patient's own home, primary care giver's home, assisted living home, nursing home or other long term care facilities.
