Hospice Volunteer Opportunity

Mission statement


At Encompass Health, we believe hospice is not a place, but rather a philosophy of care. Our goal is to bring dignity and comfort home by offering compassionate care to patients and their families during the final stages of life. Our motto is: "A Better Way to Care".


Description


Encompass Health is looking for quality Volunteers to provide companionship, socialization, and a listening ear to patients during their final months and weeks of life. Volunteers provide non-medical services and respite time for caregivers and family members. As a hospice volunteer, you will be given choices as to how much and what types of things you want to do.

A few ways you can help as a hospice volunteer is by sitting, conversing, or just listening, running errands for patients and families, playing games or reading with patients. As the COVID restrictions are changing, we really want those "face-to-face" encounters with our patients from our volunteers. Only the fully vaccinated individuals can see patients, however. Volunteers have so much to add to the team effort.

The Unvaccinated can also make a huge difference through phone conversations, administrative work at the hospice office and sending out cards and letters to our patients and families.

I look forward to talking further with you about your desire to help others!

For more information, please call me, or email today.
