VOLUNTEER AT HARMONY HOSPICE
Our volunteers are given an orientation to help prepare you for your experience with hospice and palliative clients. We have volunteers who prefer to focus their attention on one specific area, and we also have volunteers who are ready to help no matter what the task. Some of our volunteers have a particular talent or skill such as providing massage therapy or singing. Whatever the talent or skill may be, we are confident our diverse group of clients are sure to enjoy and appreciate them.
Our intimate, education-based volunteer program in a community-based setting serves to support Tucsonans in their final stage of life. Volunteer opportunities include:
- Providing compassionate care to patients, families and caregivers through direct service, program development (including our oral histories project and pet therapy program) and community engagement initiatives.
- Professional development opportunities through the Alzheimer’s Association, National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization, South Lawn Mortuary and Cemetery, and other organizations.
- Our community education center allows for ongoing training on a variety of topics including diseases and conditions experienced by hospice patients, aging simulations, caregiver support, elder abuse, and many more.
If you believe you would like to volunteer, or have questions, please feel free to contact any of our volunteer coordinators and they will be glad to help you.
Our staff is very appreciative of volunteer support. We always have special projects that need to be completed for our staff and our clients. Harmony Hospice administrative volunteers work on projects such as organizing our supplies, writing thank you cards, assembling information packets for clients, and general computer work.
Our volunteers are a special extension of our staff. As a client support volunteer you provide not only companionship to a client in need, but you provide the moral support and help with activities that will enrich their (and your) lives. You may enjoy reading together, watching tv, working on a craft project, or just having a conversation.
