Those who wish to volunteer undergo an initial 20-hour training course, along with ongoing education, but they will tell you it is well worth the effort. We welcome all those who wish to be a part of the special services we provide through volunteering. Here are a few of the ways that Hospice Volunteers can serve: Home Care and Nursing Home Volunteers – These volunteers provide shopping, errands, sitting, visits and patient care as required. Direct Patient Care Volunteers – These volunteers serve on the inpatient unit under the supervision of an RN or Certified Nursing Assistant. Clerical Volunteers – These volunteers assist the staff with clerical duties within the home care office such as data entry, filing, copying and collating materials. They may also assist at the reception desk or make tuck-in calls. Bereavement Volunteers – These volunteers serve under the direction of the Bereavement Coordinator and may provide monthly bereavement calls. They may also provide assistance for memorial services, dove delivery and the STARS program including the annual 5K walk. Special Projects Volunteers – These volunteers may participate in fundraising activities, or donate their talents in sewing, knitting, crocheting, gardening, bird feeding and other projects as determined by the hospice team.
