Must be18 years of age or older. We provide uniform, CPR training, TB testing, drug screening and background check (none of which the volunteer has to pay out of pocket). If a volunteer comes with a TB test within the last year, we just do a second screening. And if you already have CPR that will cut your application time down. Time to become a volunteer can take two weeks.
Volunteering with terminally ill adult patients in both nursing facilities and private homes. Companionship and socialization only. Students need to be prepared to take a two-step TB test, CPR training, a background check and drug screening, all at our company's expense.
Potential Projects This Year:
Having a patient attend an activity such as playing bingo, social events, painting fingernails, getting photos organized. Some volunteers have planned activities such as a facility party, some small games, exercise class. There are endless possibilities that can be started or just joined. We are looking to give our patients some fun and involvement.
