No One Dies Alone Volunteer Program
"No one should die alone . . . each human should die with the sight of a loving face." -- Mother Teresa
  
The Hi-Desert Medical Center chaplaincy team has launched this new program in the acute care setting.  Any employee, volunteer of Hi-Desert Medical Center or community member may be an end-of-life Compassionate Companion.

You choose the time, date and number of hours available to serve as a Compassionate Companion for a patient who has no family or friends.  The program provides for quiet reading, perhaps holding a hand, playing background music.  Being there is the most important thing.  The goal is death with dignity. 

Training classes are scheduled the third Thursday of the month at 3 p.m. in the Helen Gray Education Center to train volunteers for this program.  Please provide contact information in the form below if you want more information about this opportunity or would like to register to attend training classes.

Hospice Volunteer Program

Hospice volunteers provide companionship to our patients and offer support to family members.  Volunteers make visits to patients at home or in skilled nursing facilities, offering friendship and diversion with sensitive listening.  They may sit with a patient, do errands, read to the patient, and provide support and encourabement.  Volunteering is a great way to learn about yourself and about living and dying.  Gain personal satifaction from providing useful service to others.  Call Peggy Kennedy, MSW, hospice volunteer coordinator at 760/366-6327 or complete the inquiry form below.  Peggy will contact you to answer questions about this volunteer opportunity.  Volunteers receive training and must complete minimal requirements to participate.
