Did you know that 76% of adults who volunteer say they feel healthier? Moreover, 78% say it helps lower their stress levels. With those kinds of stats, why not be an Indianapolis hospice volunteer with Paradigm Living Concepts? It does a body good.
Hospice volunteers are an essential part of our team. They are specially trained individuals, who provide assistance to patients, their families and the hospice team. They do not provide direct patient care, give medications or make medical decisions. As an invaluable resource they bring a friendly smile, warm conversation, a hand to hold or or welcome respite for a family.
Tasks hospice volunteers can assist with:
A listening ear for cherished memories
Someone to play cards or games with
Assistance with letter writing or help recording a patient's life story
Hugs or hold a hand
Gardening and yard work help
Help feeding a pet
Help preparing meals for grieving families
Baking a cake or a treat
Making flower arrangements for hospice patients
Giving a manicure
Taking a patient on a nature walk
Singing along for music therapy
Assisting with events
Using your own talents to support hospice families (knitting and quilting for example)
