Signature Hospice is looking for talented musicians to volunteer with Hospice patients in the Eugene/Springfield area. Music and song are a great way to reach someone who is struggling with pain, loneliness, grief, or memory loss. We would love to connect you with a patient who shares your passion and is in need of the solace and comfort that your presence can provide.
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 with music and song. Our volunteer training will prepare you to provide the companionship and support that so many patients and families need when faced with a terminal illness. As a musical volunteer, you may play for or with patients, sing songs with them, 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--playing music, singing, writing letters, reading books aloud, playing board and card games, 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 Sept. 28th and 29th 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. For more information on trainings or to set up an interview please contact us via email or phone. Call us today so we can get you enrolled!
