Crossroads Hospice seeking volunteers

Atlanta – Times Herald 

FROM STAFF REPORTS

Crossroads Hospice is looking for compassionate volunteers to join its team of “Ultimate Givers,” who strive to provide extra love and comfort to terminally ill patients and their families throughout the greater Atlanta region.

“Ultimate Givers” visit with patients in their homes, assisted living facilities and nursing facilities, and help with clerical duties at the Crossroads office, said Kristen Copes, volunteer coordinator of Crossroads’ Atlanta office. The volunteers provide emotional support and companionship to patients and family members, assist with errands or provide respite for those caring for terminally ill loved ones.

Crossroads Hospice is also seeking volunteers to support its signature programs inspired by Jim Stovall’s novel, “The Ultimate Gift.” The “Gift of a Day” program asks patients what their perfect day is — then staff and volunteers work to make it a reality.

For more information or to sign up as a volunteer, contact Copes at 770-270-9898 or complete an application online at www.crossroadshospice.com — select volunteering from the menu list.

Before becoming a Crossroads Hospice “Ultimate Giver,” participants must complete an application, TB skin test and a training session lead by members of the Crossroads team. Volunteers must wait a minimum of one year after the death of an immediate family member or loved one before applying.
