What makes a person a suitable hospice volunteer?

short paragraph answer

May 15th, 2015

Hospice volunteers need to know that hospice work takes its specific toll. You associate with people who are going to die, and with the people who love them.  You must be able to sit quietly, take a back seat to the events taking place around you, be a calming presence when asked to.  You need to be a guest, an observer, a facilitator.

As a hospice volunteer, you need to:

  • Be dependable
  • have patience
  • Be a listener, and comfortable in silence
  • Know your strengths, your limits, and when to say no
  • Be non-judgmental
  • Accept that needs can be physical, emotional and/or spiritual
  • Respect all beliefs, all religious customs and all who lack them
  • Commit the time to volunteer orientation this
