Mercy Hospice Volunteers
Early hospice care was founded and operated by volunteers. Volunteers have remained an important part of hospice care today! As a hospice volunteer you can make a difference by offering your friendship, talent, and support to individuals near the end of their lives. Volunteers in hospice find it personally gratifying and emotionally meaningful to assist those in need at a critical point in their lives. Volunteers are an essential part of the hospice philosophy of care and an important member of our interdisciplinary team. Depending on your areas of interest, your talents, and your schedule you may choose to work directly with hospice patients, families, or provide administrative support. Some areas of opportunities available for hospice volunteers may include:
- Providing support for patients such as visiting, reading, taking walks, writing letters, music, supervising visits with pets, or just listening.
- Providing respite and support for family members/caregivers. Assistance with shopping or household chores, or allowing family/ caregivers the opportunity to take care of necessary errands and get some time away from the house.
- Bereavement support programs. Hospice volunteers can work closely with the hospice's professional bereavement staff in duties that range from assisting as support group facilitator to serving refreshments and helping with mailings to client and families.
- Administrative duties. A volunteer with clerical skills can serve by helping in the office with simple administrative duties such as filing, mail-outs, phone calls, and other such duties.
Mercy Hospice provides training sessions several times throughout the year to educate volunteers on the hospice philosophy and to help them understand our team approach in caring for hospice patients and their families. We also require a routine background check on all staff and volunteers. We encourage you to call our Volunteer Coordinator and discuss your interests with us on how you can become a hospice volunteer for our team.
