Are you passionate about making a difference in the lives of others? Do you have a heart full of empathy and a desire to provide comfort and companionship to those facing end-of-life journeys? If so, we invite you to join our compassionate team as a hospice volunteer.


At Gentiva Hospice we are dedicated to enhancing the end-of-life journey with dignity, compassion, and support. Our hospice program provides comprehensive care for patients and their families, focusing on quality of life and comfort during this challenging time.


As a hospice volunteer, you will have the opportunity to make a profound impact on the lives of patients and their families.

Your role may include:

  • Providing companionship and emotional support to patients
  • Offering respite care to caregivers so they can take a quick break
  • Talk, watch movies, read aloud, play games, color or do anything fun
  • Sharing your talents and hobbies to enhance the quality of life for patients
  • Visit your assigned patient two or three times per month (we discuss this first)


Requirements

  • Compassionate and empathetic nature
  • Willingness to undergo training and background checks and drug screen (not THC/marijuana)
  • Availability to commit to one hospice patient
  • Be at least 18 years old (16 if you want to volunteer in just the office)
  • a TB test within the last year (if you don't have we will send you to get one)
  • Have an ID of some kind, driver's license is preferred


Benefits

  • Make a meaningful difference in the lives of others
  • Gain valuable experience in hospice care and end-of-life support
  • Join a supportive community of like-minded individuals
  • Flexible volunteering opportunities to fit your schedule
  • Learn about healthcare, specifically, terminal illnesses and hospice
  • Excellent preparation for pre-med students
