The following are the types of volunteer positions available:
DIRECT PATIENT CARE VOLUNTEER
Volunteers work directly with hospice patients and their loved ones.
Open to all ages, this opportunity will harness your office skills, such as answering phones, filing, typing or even cleaning.
Individuals under the age of 18 often have a lasting impact with their contributions and we like to place them where they will make a difference.
SPECIAL SERVICES VOLUNTEER
This is an opportunity for Licensed Beauticians, Massage Therapists, Music Therapists, and/or Pet Therapists to volunteer their time and services.
Included under the Direct Patient Care Volunteer umbrella, volunteers are given the opportunity to continue a relationship with a family after their patient has passed away, via phone calls, home visits and Loss Support Groups.
11TH HOUR VOLUNTEER
Volunteers are trained to be able to sit with hospice patients and know the signs and symptoms to expect at end-of-life. Volunteers provide support through the act of being “present” and providing companionship to ensure that no one dies alone.
As a Veteran, you can serve as an outlet for a patient who has experienced traumatic combat experiences. Having been involved in similar situations, you can relate to and positively affect a patient’s situation, which gives them a sense of closure and the reassurance that their service was not in vain.
WHO CAN VOLUNTEER?
Men, women and teens with all different backgrounds are welcome. Volunteers simply need a caring heart and a willingness to serve.
