Patient and Family Support
Patient Care Volunteers are a vital part of the hospice team. They work in private homes and nursing homes by providing patients with companionship and a break to caregivers. These volunteers sit with patients, listen to their stories, read, play music, or simply hold a hand. Their visits often give family members a much-needed break.
These helping hands do general computer work, filing, and assisting with mailings. Like to get more involved? Assigned-project volunteers support a particular administrative or clinical program by providing direct assistance and input in planning and carrying out projects.
When family members cannot get to the pharmacy, courier volunteers will pick up and deliver medications. This desperately needed service saves both patient families and the organization a great deal of time and money.
These volunteers keep in touch with those grieving by making scheduled telephone calls. They also assist with support groups and the Children’s Grief Program.
Enjoy the hustle and bustle of a retail operation or have excellent office skills? Retail volunteers sort, price, tag, display merchandise, refurbish computers and assist in one of our administrative offices. Interested? Please contact store management for volunteer opportunities at your local store!
This group of volunteers works together on large mailings several times a year. The time commitment is minimal; however, the cost savings to Snowline is immense!
Veterans Helping Veterans
Veterans are especially needed to assist with award ceremonies for our veteran patients and their families. They are also needed to volunteer and offer emotional, practical, and social support one-on-one with their fellow veterans. They are welcome to volunteer in any area of the agency.
