New Century Hospice of Annandale
We are looking for both Administrative and Direct Patient Care Volunteers. Volunteers provide emotional support and companionship, comfort and respite to our patients and families. Three qualities necessary for being a hospice volunteer are: dependability, good listening skills, and a desire to help others. A medical background is not necessary, and our volunteers come from a variety of backgrounds, professions and age groups.
Administrative Volunteers: Assist with administrative needs in our offices-filing, data entry, mailings, phone calls, etc.
Direct Patient Care Volunteers: Visit patients in nursing facilities and homes, provide companionship with emotional and spiritual support to patients and/or families, and make calls to patients and/or families on regular basis.
Volunteers can give as much or as little time as their schedules allow.
