Description


Odyssey HealthCare is offering volunteer opportunities for Birmingham and surrounding residents. A patient/family support volunteer works directly with terminally ill patients and their families. Tasks can include visiting, reading, writing letters, listening, shopping, household chores, allowing the caregiver some much needed down-time, or undertaking other caring acts. Office and special project volunteer opportunities also exist. We offer training and support at no charge. You must go through orientation, which will help you become a more effective volunteer. Volunteer assignments are geared to your schedule and what you wish to offer. Someone in your neighborhood could benefit from your efforts. For more information, please call Takisha Brown at 205-870-4340 or e-mail takbrown@odsyhealth.com .
