Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Optum Palliative and Hospice Care is dedicated to delivering compassionate, individualized care for patients and their families as they face serious illnesses. We offer physical, emotional and spiritual support to patients where they live and their families to help them cope with a serious or terminal illness.
Our volunteers can support patients and families in many ways. They provide companionship to include: 1 to 1 social interaction; listening to and reading to patients; sharing photos, stories or memories; playing an instrument for or listening to music with patients; helping patients to write letters; providing caregiver support.
Additionally, special programs for patient support include: conducting a Life Review, interviewing patients about life history and creating a DVD or journal keepsake for families; providing 11th Hour support, sitting by the bedside of actively dying patients; providing Pet Therapy by bringing your certified pet to visit patients; Providing Veteran to Veteran companion visits and support to our Veteran patients; supporting our office staff by filing, sorting, mailings and performing various administrative tasks; supporting our Bereavement Program which includes monthly phone calls to families or friends after the passing of their loved one.
