Mission Statement

Serenity Hospice and Palliative Care's mission of the Volunteer Program is to provide the highest quality of volunteer services for patients and their families through effective use of Volunteers' expertise, skills and talents. In addition, it is our mission to provide high quality care to patients that are terminally ill and to form life-long relationships with families we serve.

Description

Becoming a hospice volunteer has many rewards. It is our hope potential volunteers realize what they stand to gain in return for giving their time to our hospice volunteer program. Hospice Volunteers do important work. They allow us to provide services we could not otherwise offer. Hospice Volunteers can serve and assist in so many ways. The Volunteer's presence can be extremely comforting to the patient, even if the Volunteer only sits quietly in the room. They often read to patients or suggest activities they can do together. Family members may use this time to take care of errands for a much needed respite. Volunteers may assist with light chores around the house. Chores can be anything from walking the dog to raking leaves. Volunteers may assist with errands. This may include going to the grocery store and picking up a patient's favorite ice cream. Lastly, Volunteers help out behind the scenes. Volunteers are needed not only to provide support for patients and their families, but to support the organization by doing clerical work, answering phones, serving on committees or coordinating support services and assisting with the organization's events, such as health fairs and expos.

"Volunteers are not paid because they are undeserving, but rather because the time they serve is priceless." --Anonymous
