Angelic Hospice Care Volunteering
VolunteerFor as little as an hour or two a month you can make a difference to a hospice patient in your community. Share your interests and talents or lend a listening ear to someone who simply enjoys your company. A gift of your time and compassion to those on their final journey can mean so very much to these patients and their loved ones. Your volunteer service will fit your schedule and interests, and visit assignments are your choice.
For the convenience training is provided online. Volunteer visitors must be 18 years of age. Younger volunteers (a minimum of 16 years old) can only visit patients if they do so with an adult volunteer. Parents are encouraged to train with their teens for this shared life-experience. Those as young as 16 can volunteer as office support.
Military Veterans are encouraged to become a Vet to Vet Volunteer and visit other Veterans on hospice service. Those who have shared a common military bond is a great benefit to these patients.
