Home Health United – Hospice Volunteers have a sincere desire to make a difference in the lives of others. No previous experience in the medical field is necessary. Through training, Hospice Volunteers learn how to give the gift of themselves and their time in providing emotional support, companionship and respite care to our patients and families.
Patient Support: Volunteers working directly with patients and their families provide companionship and support to patients, respite to families, and assist with errands, meal preparation or light housekeeping. Some volunteers may also choose to become part of the Caring Presence Program providing emotional comfort and support, not physical care to patients in their last hours of life.
Administrative Support: Volunteers providing administrative duties support the Hospice Program by assisting with copying, collating materials and mailings, and fundraising efforts and special events.
Due to increasing demand, HHU-Hospice has a continued need for volunteers. Volunteers are needed in both administrative and patient-interactive areas. Please see the attached Hospice Volunteer Training Fall-Winter 2016 Flyer.
