Make a Difference with Your Time and Talents
Volunteers serve a unique purpose in client-centered hospice care. They can offer companionship and socialization time for the patient or a much-needed break for family caregivers. Volunteers are trained in hospice philosophy and basics for supporting patients/families in hospice. We complete background and reference checks on all volunteers before placing them with patients. Volunteer support varies according to patient and family needs.
Sit Beside Me Program
We Honor Veterans Volunteers
Veteran Volunteers play an essential role in the delivery of our We Honor Veterans program. These volunteers are either Veterans or still on Active Duty in a branch of the US Military. They present our Veterans with a certificate, blanket, and pin in an intimate and dignified personal ceremony to honor their service to the Country. This “pinning ceremony” is the cornerstone of our efforts to serve, honor, and recognize our Veterans and their families.
Would you like to Volunteer with Endless Journey?
We utilize all kinds of people as volunteers – those who consider themselves “people persons” and thrive as companion volunteers, and those who are quieter and more meditative and do well with the Sit Beside Me program. We also often have volunteers with special gifts or talents, including musicians, people with trained or otherwise suitable animals for pet companion visits, artists who have focused on creative expression, etc. In addition to patient volunteers, we also utilize office volunteers and the creative talents of sewing volunteers, or volunteers who will help with the craft activities we do at partner nursing homes! After an initial interview to ensure fit, volunteers must pass a background check and complete appropriate training. We do ask that volunteers be prepared to volunteer for at least one year. It is recommended that if you have recently experienced the death of a close family member, to wait one year before starting volunteering for hospice.
