No Veteran Dies Alone
Serving patients at the end of life requires a special calling. As a volunteer, what you do or say is not as important as your ability to listen and be completely present with someone. We have projects and patients available in many communities from Brigham City to Payson and flexible hours that fit into full-time jobs and college schedules. Bristol Hospice provides a thorough orientation and training program for all volunteers, mostly online, which can be completed at the volunteer’s convenience. At the completion of the onboarding process, which will also include a background check, Most projects involve direct patient interaction although there are indirect patient projects as well. Volunteers must be 18 years or older. For more information contact Heidi Jaeger at 435-659-5624 and [email protected]
