Our roles and disciplines

Working in home health & hospice

Our hospice volunteers

For those interested in making a difference in end-of-life care for patients, Encompass Health has volunteer opportunities to provide companionship and support to patients in their final months and weeks of life. Our hospice volunteers also provide non-medical services and respite time for caregivers and family members.

As a hospice volunteer, you have options about how often you help and the activities you complete. While a variety of options exist, many of our volunteers:

  • Provide companionship and socialization to patients
  • Run errands for patients and families
  • Walk or care for family pets
  • Play games, read out loud or listen to music with patients
  • Help with light housekeeping
  • Create photo albums of patients and their families
  • Write a journal or life story with patients as a gift to their families
  • Help with general office and agency support

As a leader, something that I'm focused on is having crucial conversations and not backing away from the hard stuff. We need to be the first one to walk into an uncomfortable situation and be solution-oriented.
