Hospice Volunteers help provide a system of care for patients and families
Crossroads Hospice Seeks Compassionate, Caring Volunteers Hospice volunteers help provide a system of care for patients and families
Crossroads Hospice seeks compassionate and emotionally mature volunteers to provide support to hospice patients and their families in Oklahoma, Lincoln, Canadian, Cleveland, Grady, Logan, Pottawatomie and McClain counties.
Hospice patient care volunteers visit with patients in their homes, hospitals or nursing facilities once a week. They provide emotional support and companionship to patients and family members, assist with errands, or provide respite for those caring for terminally ill loved ones.
“Volunteers make a world of difference in the lives of hospice patients and their families,” says Emily Hart, volunteer coordinator. “By doing the little things such as helping with basic household chores, being a friendly voice to patients, and giving caregivers a much needed break, volunteers can make a big difference to families during a difficult and strenuous time.”
For more information or to sign up as a volunteer, please contact Emily Hart at (405) 632-9631.
Crossroads Hospice is committed to being at the forefront of the hospice care industry, to continually shape the way end-of-life care is viewed and administered. The mission of Crossroads Hospice is to provide highly unique, comprehensive, and compassionate hospice services to persons experiencing a life-limiting illness and to their caregivers.
