Preferred Hospice is in need of Volunteers!
Our Direct Patient Care Volunteers provide companionship to patients receiving palliative care through offering emotional support and comfort. Direct Patient Care Volunteers visit with patients in long term care facilities and provide activities such as reading, writing letters to loved ones, listening to music, or simply holding their hand so they can rest peacefully. Direct Patient Care Volunteers may also visit home patients and provide respite to caregivers through light house keeping, yard work, or staying with a patient while they go to appointments.
Our Office and Administrative Volunteers give support to the administrative team through assisting with data input, special projects, making copies, etc..
Preferred Hospice provides education, training, and mileage reimbursement to all volunteers. We typically ask that our volunteers provide 4 hours of service a month, but more is appreciated. If you are interested and would like more information, please call volunteer coordinators Christie and Pam at 417-581-4968. We will be glad to schedule a time to meet with you to discuss the opportunity further and fill out an application with you.
Our Volunteers become a part of our family. We are looking forward to meeting you!
All volunteers are required to fill out an application, agree to a background check, and register on the Family Care Safety Registry site. All volunteers complete a training and education program.
