Help us with our mission here at American Care, by being a volunteer.
Volunteers are a vital part of the American Care Hospice team. They give comfort, caring concern
and compassion to our patients and their families. Whether you have limited time to give or you have
a more flexible schedule, American Care has many meaningful volunteer opportunities available.
Volunteers provide emotional support to patients in their homes through companionship, reading aloud, life review and engaging in activities of interest to the patient.
Support to families is provided through provision of respite care, shopping, cooking and light housekeeping.
Volunteers also provide companionship and emotional support to patients at our inpatient units.
Provide clerical support to staff in our office. Tasks include assist with medical records, filing, answering the telephone, and giving tours, but most importantly, the receptionist is responsible for providing family members and visitors a warm welcome.
Assist our Hospice Liaison at our agency booth at health fairs where you’ll have the opportunity to answer questions about our services and assist others to better understand hospice care.
Special Events Volunteers also provide assistance before, during and after agency fundraisers and special events.
In the absence of friends or family, volunteers sit with patients who are close to death in our inpatient units or a contracted facility. Volunteers may provide light hand massage, play soft music, read aloud or provide a loving presence at the bedside during this sacred time.
Volunteers make weekly calls to our home patients who desire this service to provide a listening ear, assess for new needs and answer questions about their care.
