AseraCare's goal is to improve the quality of life for terminally ill patients. This means managing symptoms to allow our patients to live alert, pain-free and with dignity, supported by loved ones and our caring staff and volunteers.
Volunteers play an important role in the philosophy of care at AseraCare Hospice. They provide support to patients and their families that helps enhance the patient's quality of life and reduce the family's caregiving burden. Hospice volunteers may run errands, prepare light meals, stay with a patient to give family members a break, lend emotional support, provide companionship and help out with light housekeeping.
AseraCare volunteers bring a wide variety of skills and talents - such as music, companionship and crafts - to our patients and families in support of our hospice team. Every hospice volunteer has something special and significant to contribute, and we welcome new ideas and contributions.
We train our volunteers in a number of areas, including listening techniques, working with families, loss and grief, and bereavement support. If you would like to apply to become a volunteer, please contact Ashley Reppy (Volunteer Care Coordinator) at (816)880-3900.
