The focus of hospice is on the individual and the involved family rather than on the disease. It is the goal of our hospice staff to provide for the whole person, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. Care focuses on maintaining dignity and a sense of personal fulfillment to the dying by allowing choices, listening, and caring.
The need for Hospice volunteers is extremely great. Volunteer are vital members of Liberty Hospice's team. Volunteers share a smile and help patients recall the moments of life that matter and create new moments to share Volunteers assist the patient and family with care and assistance to meet needs at a stressful time, Hospice. Volunteers sit with patient, read and talk to patients to help family members and caregivers, they provide emotional support and companionship to patients in a home or in a facility, and help the patient stay connected with community groups and activities. Hospice volunteers also help with completing clerical duties in the office or running errands.
Liberty Hospice offers many options for volunteer services and provides complete training and ongoing support. Some documents and requirements to become a Hospice Volunteer are a PPD test (Tuberculosis test), a copy of your driver's license, completion of training and the volunteer application.
