A vital part of the hospice care team, Arkansas Hospice volunteers are caring, committed people from all walks of life who gain a sense of satisfaction from making a difference in the lives of others.
One of the biggest roles that our Arkansas Hospice volunteers fulfill is to help provide practical, emotional and spiritual support to our patients and families. Many of our trained and certified volunteers visit patients who are receiving care in their homes, in assisted living facilities or nursing homes, while others spend time at one of our Arkansas Hospice inpatient centers.
Volunteers often help by making personal visits or phone calls, sitting with patients to give caregivers a chance to rest and – most of all – listening and sharing thoughts and feelings. Being a hospice volunteer brings the opportunity to touch another’s heart and experience the achievements of another’s lifetime in a special way.
Of course, some people want to help Arkansas Hospice, yet prefer volunteering in ways not directly related to patient care. Various opportunities exist, and help is always welcome – whether it is by serving on our boards of directors, working in our offices, helping with fundraisers or sewing Memory Bears, quilts or lap blankets.
Regardless of what your preferences or talents might be, your help is always welcome and appreciated! To start a conversation with us regarding volunteering, our Foundation or any other questions you have, please click here, or call us statewide at (877) 713-2348.
I have nothing but the best things to say about Arkansas Hospice. They were so good to my Dad before he passed away. The love and care, compassion they showed to my dad was priceless. The nurses and CNA’s that took care of my Dad are the best and always be the best.
We are just starting our dad’s final journey and Arkansas Hospice has been a blessing. They’ve taught us so much already and provide as much support and comfort to the family as they do my dad. I’m grateful they’ll be walking this final path with us.
I love Arkansas Hospice. Every single employee has a heart of gold and takes the best care of their patients.
I would not hesitate at all to recommend this provider for anyone who is considering hospice care for themselves or for a loved one.
Arkansas Hospice took care of my Mom before she passed. It was my first experience with any hospice and I was amazed. They took such great care of her. They treated her with dignity and respect until the end.
So many thanks for the way your staff treated my very dear friend, Jeff, as he raced toward the finish line. Words can’t express my gratitude for helping us to care for him and keep him comfortable. Top-notch professionalism and immediate responses to requests for assistance.
