Is Volunteering for You?

About Volunteering

A volunteer’s gift of time completes the circle of care that is offered through hospice.

Hospice is designed to provide comfort care as well as spiritual and emotional support in the final phase of a terminal illness. At Comfort Hospice, we focus on enhancing the quality of life and our volunteers play a key role in our mission. volunteering_small1 Our hospice program strives to go beyond the physical needs of the patient. Comfort Hospice ensures that our patients will spend their final days of their journey in comfort and with dignity.

If you are caring, compassionate and have a true desire to help others, becoming a Comfort Hospice volunteer may be the perfect opportunity for you. Our volunteers share their time and talents in order to offer companionship to our patients, while easing the burden that may be felt by their family members during this difficult time.

What are the benefits of becoming a Comfort Hospice volunteer?

The contributions of volunteers are essential to the important work provided by our hospice team. Hospice volunteers report having a deep sense of personal satisfaction in being there for someone during such a poignant time in their life. They feel as though they are making a significant contribution to the community and providing a service that they hope others would offer to them if they were in need. Many volunteers feel that helping people through the dying process keeps them focused on prioritizing important aspects of their own lives.

How much of a commitment is required?

After training is completed, you can determine how much time to commit to Comfort Hospice, as well as the communities you would like to serve. Because the duties of the volunteers vary, we will help you find an opportunity that is convenient for you. Whether you dedicate as little as two hours per month, or 8 hours per week, all efforts are extremely appreciated!

 

Training classes are free of charge and are now forming. Please contact the office near you for more information on how you can become involved.

These 3 have something so special about them that you feel comforted just by their presence. Volunteer Cindy was our angel of mercy. Her presence during the last hours were our present from above."
