Each patient and visit is unique, however support may include:
- Reminiscing or life review
- Reading a book or magazine
- Listening to music
- Praying together
- Taking walks
- Helping to make phone calls
- Writing letters to loved ones
- Sitting quietly and being present with the patient
For patients living in a private residence, End-of-Life Companions provide support that allows family caregivers a break to run errands, attend an outing, or simply to catch up on sleep.
Not sure you are qualified for this role? No problem. The journey to working with patients who have a limited life expectancy, and their family members requires careful preparation. That is why we have an extensive online training program designed to prepare you for the experiences ahead. The convenience of online learning allows you to access the information anytime, anywhere, and to work at your own pace.
We believe it is a gift to serve others at this sacred time. If you feel called to this meaningful volunteer opportunity, we'd love to hear from you.
