VolunteerEveryone Needs a Hero
The services you will give as a Community Home Care & Hospice volunteer will profoundly improve the quality of our patient's lives. Friendly visits enable families to keep their loved ones at home, around the people they love, and the things they love. Assisting with errands helps a tired family caregiver cope with their many challenges and allows them time with their loved one. Simply holding a patient's hand can ease their mind and console their spirit. Volunteering takes no advanced medical training or great commitment. It can be as simple as reading to, or spending time with a patient a few hours a week. It's small deeds of kindness that so profoundly enhance the lives of our patients and those who love them.
There are many kinds of Community Home Care & Hospice volunteers. Our volunteers include individuals, families, businesses, youth and school groups, civic organizations and churches. Volunteer candidates go through interview and screening processes to ensure the safety of our patients and their families. All hospice volunteers are given assignments that best suit their time, skills and interests. They're thoroughly trained and supported in the skills they need for their volunteer role. Training includes scheduled sessions, individual training and on-site training for groups and organizations.
