Are you a kind, caring individual who enjoys helping people? If so, you might be interested in becoming a Hospice volunteer. Hospice is a special kind of care for dying people, their families, and their caregivers. Hospice is there to give extra support at a critical time.
The Hospice staff, such as nurses, social workers, and clergy are essential to Hospice care, but the Hospice team also includes and depends on volunteers to help in many different ways. These may include:
"Being There" to let the patient know he or she is not alone
Visiting the patient or caregiver
Assisting with household chores
Providing favorite foods or music
Joining in favorite pastimes
Writing thank-you notes
Making telephone calls
In other words, volunteers do all the caring things we do every day to help a friend or neighbor going through a difficult time. Hospice Volunteer Training is offered FREE of charge. Taking the training in no way obligates you to becoming a volunteer. Some people take it to join us later when time allows.
Being a Hospice Volunteer can be one of the most rewarding things a person can do. If you are a caring, compassionate man or woman interested in learning about volunteering for Hospice, call Hospice Services, Inc. at 1-800-315-5122 for more information.
We want YOU on our TEAM!!
