Hospice Volunteer Opportunities
Some of the most valuable contributions come not from the wallet, but rather from the heart. Our programs were truly founded in this spirit of caring and volunteerism. Each year volunteers contribute hundreds of hours to Golden Belt Hospice. All volunteers participate in an orientation to prepare them for their assignments.
We are currently seeking volunteers for the following assignments:
- Be a friendly visitor by providing companionship to patients in their own homes or nursing homes. Visits may include reading, writing letters, running errands or preparing lunch. Basically being there to meet the patient’s need and energy level.
- Provide caregiver relief by staying with and visiting the patient at home while the primary caregiver gets a much-needed reprieve.
- Bereavement volunteers follow up with family members who have lost a loved one in our program, providing visitation and caring support.
- Administrative assistance usually involves mailings, filing, photocopying, assembling packets, couriering, or other office related assistance.
