|Roze Room Hospice of the Valley offers five different volunteer opportunities:|
Patient/Family Volunteers – Patient/Family Volunteers work directly with the patients and families providing friendly visits, companionship and caregiver support. The visit schedule is flexible and depends upon the volunteer and patient availability. The Patient/Family Volunteer must be 18 years or older, and requires 20 hours of instruction, a TB test, and a background check.
Tuck-In Volunteers – Tuck-In Volunteers call 4-5 patient/families as needed (daily, weekly) to check in on their progress, order supplies and give a sense of support to lone caregivers and families needing that extra assistance. There are no patient visits, all contact is by phone. You are required to e-mail your reports to the team leader and volunteer coordinator. The Tuck-In Volunteer must be 18 years or older, and requires 20 hours of instruction and a background check.
Compassionate Companions – Compassionate Companions extend caring concern to the patients by providing a reassuring presence at the bedside of a dying patient who would otherwise be alone. The Compassionate Companion Volunteer must be 18 years or older, and requires 20 hours of instruction, a TB test, and a background check.
Office Volunteer – Office Volunteers assist in the office with mailings, photocopying, collating and general office support. The Office Volunteer does require some training and a background check.
Threshold Choir - In groups of two to four, the choir will sing gentle songs from a variety of traditions to sooth, comfort, uplift and bring peace to our patients. The choir sings in private home or healthcare facilities. The choir meets Tuesday of the month from 12:30-1:30 pm Singing experience is not necessary, just and open heart and a feeling of being drawn to this work. The Threshold Choir volunteer does require training, TB test and a background check
All TB tests and background checks are provided free of charge by Roze Room Hospice.
