WE NEED VOLUNTEERS THAT ARE COMPASSIONATE AND WANT TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN A PERSON'S LIFE!
We are partners in care with Marion Estates and we are seeking a volunteer to help Serenity Hospice serve this facility!
~Volunteers are needed within the range in age from teens to senior citizens
~Hospice volunteers can dedicate as little or as much time as they wish. Some volunteers donate several hours each week while others commit to a few hours each month.
~Prefer to offer services on an as-needed basis. All volunteers will have the opportunity to schedule a one-on-one discussion with our Volunteer Coordinator to discuss their interests and availability.
All hospice volunteers receive training to ensure that they feel comfortable performing their requested/assigned care activities.
You determine the amount of time you can provide, but generally it is between one and three hours of support per patient visit.
Volunteers Needed for the following:
~Being present with the patient to allow their caregiver to rest and/or run errands.
~Listening to the patient. They may share their concerns, regrets, and/or areas of thankfulness with you. You may have opportunities to encourage the patient to share their life story (and possibly capture a verbal or written summary of this information).
~Engaging in the patient's hobbies - perhaps reading to them, listening to music, discussing current events or playing a board or card game.
~Assisting the patient to make short trips outside, assisting with phone calls and/or letter writing.
~Visiting with family members/caregivers
~Pet Volunteer if you have a pet that is therapy certified.
~Bereavement Support Activities/ Office Work Needed as well
You have all the knowledge and skills that you will need to volunteer, just give us a call!
