A life-limiting illness never takes a sick day or has off for the holiday. Although the weather has been mild so far, if/when inclement weather arrives in the upcoming winter months our interdisciplinary team must still find a way to visit our patients most in need. While businesses and schools in the county may be closed, our wonderful Hospice Team (including our dedicated volunteers) are out in the county providing the upmost quality of care to our patients and their families. During times of inclement weather, our willing teams of volunteers with four-wheel drive are called upon to transport our nurses and other medical staff to the homes of our hospice patients who are in immediate need of care. With the winter months among us, we are heavily seeking volunteers who are interested in this calling.
The time commitment for this role is dependent upon the needs of such services and the individual availability of the volunteer. We require all of our volunteer drivers to possess a current valid driver's license, evidence of a driving record in good standing, and proof of automobile liability insurance.
Possible tax deductions are available and can be explained to you by our staff.
PLEASE NOTE - The safety of or patients, staff, and volunteers are of the upmost importance. We would never place our volunteers or staff in danger in extreme inclement weather - and in such a situation would call emergency services to visit those patients who are in urgent need
