Our mission at Gentiva Hospice is to provide compassionate care to those we serve during the end of life’s journey through our commitment to clinical excellence and uncompormising service.
We are looking for warm hearted, caring people to join our team and support our patients and families as a hospice volunteer. Our volunteers serve as companions, sitters and provide emotional support to patients and their family members. Additionally, our volunteers can read enouraging literature to patients, watch a movie or a show, provide music therapy and other meaningful services as needed. We have a mandatory orientation process, then the volunteers are assigned patients based on our patients needs, the volunteers interests and talents. Some volunteers serve once a month, others serve several times a week. The hours are flexible. Our goal for the volunteer program at Gentiva is to create beautiful experiences not only for our patients and families but for our volunteers as well.
