Hospice is about quality of life. Your compassion and loving presence is all that is required to make a tremendous difference in someone's life.
Signature Hospice invites you to join our team to support patients and families in the Eugene/Springfield community and surrounding areas. Our volunteer training will prepare you to provide the companionship and support so many patients and families need when faced with a terminal illness. As a volunteer, you may take walks with a person in the garden at a facility or their home, listen to stories about their life, adventures, and relationships or about current worries and concerns. Our volunteer opportunities include direct patient/family companionship and support--writing letters, reading books aloud, playing board and card games, playing and listening to music, providing conversations and companionship, sitting quietly, watching TV or enjoying nature, and sometimes helping with bucket list items.
Signature offers a personal letter of reference for those volunteers who have been working with patients for 90 days or more and could use this service towards employment or school applications.
Our next training will be January 18th and 19th from 8:15am to 3:30pm. Lunch and snacks will be provided. This in-depth weekend training will include guest speakers from various hospice modalities.
