Description

James River Hospice is in need of caring, compassionate volunteers to provide basic companionship for our patients and respite care for their families.

Volunteers will: 

-sit with patients while their families and / or caregivers run errands or need a break (perform light housekeeping, meal prep, etc)

-assist patients and their families with basic errands

 

We are asking for a commitment of 1-4 hours weekly based on patient / family needs.  Companionship visits last roughly an hour.  Visits for caregiver relief can last up to 4 hours to allow for doctor appointments, shopping, resting, etc.

All volunteers will be required to complete a background check / drug test and to attend an orientation detailing the policies and procedures of hospice care, as well as their specific duties and roles.

*Please note:  James River Hospice Inc. is a for-profit hospice agency.  Volunteer engagement is a requirement of Medicare Hospice Conditions of Participation 418.78*
