The Hospice Volunteer is a person in the community who has chosen to maintain the Hospice spirit by giving their time, energy, and interest in being a helpful companion to the patient suffering from a terminal illness, a supportive individual to the patient"s family, and a supportive individual to the Hospice organization by completing various Hospice tasks as assigned. Philosophy of Hospice Work: It is the development of skills, ideas, and self by giving away those gifts already granted. The Hospice Volunteer will have an understanding and be supportive of the philosophy of Hospice Comfort Care in the areas of physical comfort, emotional comfort, and spiritual comfort.
The Hospice Volunteer will keep all information concerning the life/death of Hospice patients and their loved ones confidential, sharing only with members of the Hospice Team.
