Volunteer Opportunity - Hospice Companionship Volunteers Needed

Volunteer Opportunity Details:

Last updated on March 14, 2017

Quality of care is one of the cornerstones of our mission - a mission that could not be accomplished without the many 'helping hands' of our volunteers. Arbor Hospice has a dedicated volunteer force of more than 300 caring individuals and we offer opportunities in just about every area you can imagine.

All of our volunteers receive extensive training in providing comfort and support to families facing end-of-life issues. Topics covered during volunteer training include hospice and palliative care, ways to improve communication, active listening, identifying and respecting cultural differences, spirituality, and grief and the healing process.

Without the contributions of each and every one of the volunteers, we would not be able to provide the level of care and comfort to our patients for which we are renowned.

We are seeking volunteers to visit patients residing in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, or patients' home environments throughout Howell, Brighton, and surrounding areas. These volunteers provide support, companionship and caregiver relief to patients and their families. This can include: holding a hand, being a great listener, giving a hug, playing a game, life review, music and more. Hospice volunteers find their work to be personally gratifying, stimulating and meaningful.

Arbor Hospice recommends that any person who has suffered a personal loss wait a period of 12 months prior to volunteering.
