Volunteers are Part of the Team!
Grace is always looking for compassionate people to visit our patients, providing support to those who are nearing the end of their earthly lives. This companionship takes the form of weekly or twice-monthly visits to a patient’s home which could be their house, an assisted living or memory care facility, or a personal care home in a neighborhood. Listening is a big part of providing companionship, but you might also read or play a game or take your patient outside for a bit of fresh air. If they are unable to communicate, just holding their hand may be in order.
Volunteers attend a 3 ½ hour training held at our Kingwood office and are also expected to have a background check and annual TB skin test that is required of all people working in a healthcare setting – all of which are provided by Grace Hospice. We serve patients all over Houston and will endeavor to find a patient that is as close to your home or job as possible.
