What Does a Hospice Volunteer Do?
The activities you will do as an Amedisys hospice volunteer may be many and varied. From reading at a patient's bedside and knitting lap blankets, to running errands, providing pet therapy or helping with administrative duties - there's a wide range of possibilities. Common volunteer activities often include:
Activities with patients, like reading and writing letters, playing games, participating in pet therapy, scrapbooking or other crafts – and just plain companionship.
Helping with household activities like running errands, arranging flowers, walking pets or other tasks to help keep things running smoothly.
Provide emotional support for the patient – and the family – such as providing breaks for family and friend caregivers, making spiritual prayer calls, attending funerals and memorial services and offering companionship to loved ones.
