TOUCH A PATIENT AND FAMILY’S LIFE
We would not be Comfort Care Hospice without our volunteers. Our volunteers bring warmth, joy, and tenderness into the daily practice of caring for patients. If you enjoy helping people in need or find a sense of purpose in walking through trials with others, kindly contact us. We are always in need of compassionate, caring people with a heart to serve.
No matter what your task is as a volunteer, you make a difference by empowering families to enjoy the limited time they have left with their loved ones. Volunteers participate in several unique roles:
Patient volunteers interact directly with patients and their families, providing non-medical attention. Their time includes visiting with patients, offering comfort, listening to stories and memories, reading aloud, playing cards and games, helping with chores, or providing bereavement support. We also encourage Junior volunteers, ages 15 to 18, who are interested in the health care field.
Support volunteers touch patients lives by investing time into Comfort Care. These volunteers make crafts for patients, attend special events, help with projects or administrative needs, answer phones, and recruit other volunteers. Support volunteers are our behind-the-scenes champions.
COMPANIONS VOLUNTEER VIGIL TEAM
Companions share life closely with patients. Companions keep vigil with patients and families during their final hours. Our companion program is a special service staffed by trained volunteers who are deeply dedicated to offering friendship and care.
