Description

A patient/family care volunteer donates his/her time and talents to a hospice household and can fill many needed roles. The special ways a volunteer touches the lives of those befriended is endless, and adds comfort and support through services such as: •Companionship •Preparing simple meals •Reading to the patient •Helping write letters •Running errands •Listening/emotional support •Doing simple household tasks. Most volunteers visit their families once or twice a week and volunteers choose their level of time commitment. We do request a 1 year commitment with 1 - 2 hours served each week. Volunteer opportunities are available in all 30 counties that we serve. For more information, please contact Amber Bundy, Volunteer Coordinator, at 800.338.4043 or email abundy@gahospice.com
