Ongoing Volunteer Need
Volunteers are needed to help meet the needs of the terminally ill and their families, whatever those might be: respite for the caregivers, reading, life review, companionship, errands, light cleaning, etc. We provide hospice support in all areas of Marion County. Our patients reside in private residences, skilled nursing facilities, assisted living facilities, and senior communities.
Premier Hospice volunteers make a difference by:
•Providing companionship and friendship to patients during the last days of their lives.
•Offering emotional and spiritual support to families and caregivers.
•Running errands to ease the burden felt by family and loved ones.
•Performing light housekeeping duties, and creating a clean and comfortable atmosphere.
•Assisting the Premier Hospice staff with mailings, typing tasks, collating print material and answering telephone calls.
