Did you know? Hospice care in the U.S. was founded by volunteers. That explains why there is continued commitment to volunteers across hospices. Additionally, Medicare regulations require that hospices have trained volunteers as a part of the services they provide.
By being a Shalom hospice volunteer, you can gain great personal satisfaction from knowing that you have made an impact in another person’s life and your community.
No task is too big or too small for a hospice volunteer, but often the most important thing you can do is just to being for patients and reassuring them they are not alone, holding their hands, offering a smile, or just listening to their stories. It is not easy work, but the personal rewards are enormous. The strength and courage of patients provide a constant source of inspiration, and volunteers usually feel they gain more than they have been able to give.
