Our Mission:

To provide care and education that positively transform the way people view and experience the end of life.

Volunteer Training

State and federal regulations require that hospice volunteers are appropriately trained and oriented to the needs of our patients and families. To comply with these requirements, Volunteers must attend both Session One and Session Two training events, each approximately 3 hours in length. Contact our office for the most current training schedule.

Volunteers provide important services to Superior Hospice and the people we serve. Whether it’s providing companionship to a person in the final months and weeks of life, offering support to family members and caregivers or helping with community outreach, the contributions of volunteers are essential to the important work provided by Superior Hospice. By being a hospice volunteer, you can gain great personal satisfaction from knowing you have made an impact in another person’s life. Regardless of their age, our volunteers are mature, caring individuals who have chosen to give of themselves in one or more of the many ways in which they can.

Volunteers Vital To Our Mission

Volunteer

Patient Care Volunteers

Patient care volunteers offer help and companionship to patients and their families.

Home Care – Volunteers visit patients and families in their homes. Duties may include personal care, errands, transportation, light housekeeping, or providing respite for the family by sitting with the patient or visiting with the caregiver.
Long Term Care - Volunteers visit patients residing in nursing home settings regularly to provide companionship and a gentle presence

Bereavement Volunteers

Who better to help someone that just lost a loved one than someone who has just experienced a similar loss?    The helping of another, helps  both.

Bereavement  volunteers provide support to loved ones during  the months following a  patient’s death. This help is offered through regular personal visits and/or telephone contacts.

Administrative/Auxiliary Volunteers

Rather than have direct contact with patients and families, administrative and auxiliary volunteers assist with daily work in the hospice office, such as: fundraising, errand running, medical records, receptionist, office assistant, data entry, etc.

Student Volunteers

High school students - become a part of the Superior Hospice mission. In addition to the previously mentioned opportunities, you can have fun participating with nursing home residents. Play bingo, pokeno, be a dance partner or musician or just help them to exercise; judge a talent show, participate in holiday festivities or "adopt" a special family to support. Get your club, youth group, or service organization involved. We want you to BE INVOLVED!
