Mission Statement

As expressions of God’s healing love, witnessed through the ministry of Jesus, we are steadfast in serving all, especially those who are poor and vulnerable.

Description

Volunteers with Providence Hospice and HomeCare of Snohomish County help provide emotional and practical support to those who are facing a terminal illness. We serve patients and families throughout Snohomish county, wherever they may call home (private residence, nursing facility, adult family home, etc.) Volunteers can serve in their own community. Volunteers may help by providing companionship for patients, respite for caregivers, transportation to appointments, assistance with errands such as grocery shopping, and much more. Complementary Therapists also provide massage therapy, music therapy, animal-assisted interactions, meditation, and other modalities to provide comfort to patients. Volunteers also provide support to our bereaved family members through one-on-one listening support, co-facilitating a children, teens or adult grief group, or as a volunteer at Camp Erin (an overnight, weekend camp for children and teens who have lost a loved one). In addition, volunteers help support our mission through administrative work in our offices.

Providence Hospice did a great job helping my wife in her final two months and I wanted to give something back. In 2018 I went through a great training course and then began my volunteer journey. It's been a great journey! My supervisors are great to work with and have been very responsive to any questions or requests for help. They have passion for the work and make sure we volunteers are successful, and that our patients get the best of care. There are a variety of things us volunteers help with. I've delivered Christmas gifts to families with ill children, and sat many hours with people in a variety of settings, doing companionship and respite. I've only scratched the surface of what I can help with. I never feel alone in doing this work. I am part of a team that works together. I have had a number of vol;unteer involvements over the years, but it's hard to imagine anything more satisfying than my time with Providence. Recommended!
