Hospice volunteers needed

Ridgeview is seeking caring individuals from the community who would like to serve as hospice volunteers. Hospice involves caring for terminally ill patients, usually in the patient’s own home or in care facilities, during the last months of life. Working with the medical team, hospice volunteers provide support and companionship to patients and their families, making it possible for family members to support their loved one.

Volunteers need to be at least 18-years-old, complete Ridgeview’s initial application process (health screening, background check, general volunteer orientation) and complete specialized hospice volunteer training. To learn more, contact Sharon Schreiner, Hospice Volunteer Coordinator, Ridgeview Medical Center: 952-442-2191, ext. 35593, or Sharon.schreiner@ridgeviewmedical.org.
