Volunteer Program
 

Hospice Quality Care volunteers are an invaluable asset to our facility. They provide support in a number of ways to our administrators, health care staff, patients, and families. Volunteers are not medical staff and provide no physical care for the patients.


Volunteers find a sense of accomplishment and reward in knowing that they have made a positive contribution during the last days of an individual’s life.

 
Some of the activities and work that our volunteers assist with include in-home sitting, staffing the welcome desk at the inpatient center, and other general tasks such as assisting with office work, holiday decorating, and bi-annual fundraisers.


Volunteers may select the area of work in which they are interested, and our Volunteer Coordinator will make every effort  to arrange the staffing schedule so that it meets the needs of both the volunteer and Hospice Quality Care. Scheduling is flexible so that, as the need arises, volunteers may arrange for time off, or with the knowledge and input of the Volunteer Coordinator, rework their schedules.

Volunteer Requirements


Our volunteers are compassionate and caring individuals who interact with people undergoing a whole range of emotions as they deal with the death of their loved one. Volunteers should be good listeners who can display genuine empathy and understanding for our patients and their families.


Volunteers should be willing to commit to a 12-month period.


All volunteer candidates over 18 must agree to a background check, have a tuberculosis test at the facility at no cost to them, complete an eight-hour orientation session, and possess a valid driver’s license and proof of insurance.

 

 

Student Volunteer Program


Both high school and college students are encouraged to volunteer. High school students ages 16 and 17 are not required to have a driver’s license or proof of insurance, but must have written permission from their parent or guardian.


Students can benefit from our volunteer program in a number of ways.

 


•Volunteering at a hospice is a good way to gain some experience for students contemplating a career in the medical field.
 

•Volunteering is a great résumé builder.
 

•Volunteer hours may be used as an internship for college course credits. Check with our Volunteer Coordinator to discuss this opportunity.
