| Description of Activity / Trip : |
One of life’s most rewarding experiences is to serve on the Catholic Hospice Team as a volunteer. Many people mistakenly associate hospice only with sorrow. However, Catholic Hospice volunteers often experience times of joy, peace and heartwarming closeness with their patients. Because we truly value each day, we emphasize living every moment we have together.
Catholic Hospice volunteers support our program through a variety of ways including:
Patient Care - visitation, assisting patients with routine daily tasks (ie. writing letters, small errands, light meal preparation, etc.) and/or providing breaks for the caregivers
Bereavement - contacting bereaved family members via written correspondence, telephone or home visits to offer support
Clerical - supporting administrative staff with clerical tasks such as telephone, filing, data entry and mailings
Fundraising - planning and implementation of fundraisers, serving as committee members for fundraising activities
Public Relations - "manning" information tables at community fairs in an effort to educate the public about hospice services
