Hospice provides holistic care for individuals who are making life’s final journey. The McLean Hospice Interdisciplinary Team - nurses, social workers, counselors, home health aides and volunteers - prides itself on helping patients find comfort to enjoy the richness of time they have left with loved ones, while surrounding families with the caring support and 24/7 availability of the professional team. Our Hospice focus is ensuring this final journey is filled with a rich sense of dignity and the best quality of life possible.
We are seeking mature individuals who can commit time to volunteer with our Hospice program, and can effectively support our mission, program and team. Trained volunteers may visit patients and families in the community in their homes, apartments, or in assisted living or nursing facilities to provide social support, respite, companionship, a listening ear, and a caring presence. They may also help families with specific tasks such as running an errand, planting flowers, walking a dog, or making a meal.
