Hospice Volunteers Needed
Hebrew Health Care Hospice is looking for people and pet companions who want to share their time and talents with our hospice patients in a variety of settings.
In particular, we are looking for:
- Pet Therapy certified dogs and cats
- Massage/Reiki specialists
- Russian and Spanish speaking individuals
- Artists and painters
- Knitters and people who like to sew
- Expressive puppeteers
Volunteers work wherever the patient calls home, in an Assisted Living Facility, Skilled Nursing Facility, Independent Living Facility, private home or in a hospital. They provide companionship to our patients, while supporting caregivers and their families.
All Hospice volunteers are required to complete 20 hours of orientation training and attend 12 additional hours per year of in service continuing education.
Training begins mid-January 2013. To begin the application process, contact Pam Gordon, Hospice Volunteer Coordinator, at (860) 929-7921, or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
