Homestead Hospice is a community-based hospice program committed to providing EXCELLENT hospice care for patients and their families. We are currently seeking caring and dedicated individuals to provide volunteer support by being a friendly patient visitor, offer socialization to our patients by reading, playing bingo or just watching a movie. As a hospice patient volunteer, you will be trained to visit with a patient in their place of residence to provide comfort and companionship. We have patients in facilities and in their own homes all over the Upstate. The patients are so joyful when volunteers come visit and spend time with them. This is such an enriching opportunity to be able to give back to the community and serve those and their families in a challenging time of their life. The commitment for a patient volunteer is only a minimum of 1 hour per week. Applicants also help out in the office, serve in the group, or be a bereavement volunteer.

For more information, please contact Megan Poupore, Volunteer Coordinator, at (864) 288-5136 or mpoupore@homesteadhospice.net
