As a Tidewell volunteer, you'll receive the preparation and training you need to comfortably and successfully complete your chosen assignment. Some volunteers undergo additional training based on their selected area of service. Here is a snapshot of some of the opportunities available to volunteers:
In the administrative offices, volunteers provide much-needed help, including answering phones, helping with mailings, photocopying and other tasks.
Opportunities exist to assist with support groups, make follow-up calls to families through Tidewell's Telephone Assurance Program (TAP) and help with memorial services.
Through this innovative program, volunteers provide respite through music and art interventions, clowning, reminiscence activities, pet therapy, touch/energy therapy or horticultural experiences.
Providing respite care and support for a patient and his or her family is one of the most personal ways a volunteer can become involved with Tidewell. The volunteer serves as a friend, visiting the patient where he or she lives.
Transitions engages volunteers to provide unique assistance, companionship, transportation and other services for patients who have a life expectancy of one year or less.
High school students are actively involved in many exciting projects, including life review, arts and crafts, hosting in the hospice houses, staffing informational tables at community events and helping with the annual "Tree of Remembrance" during the holidays.
Volunteers provide emotional support and assist with practical concerns on behalf of patients and their families during the last 24 to 48 hours of life.
If you ever had an interest in volunteering in a retail setting; now is your chance. Treasures welcomes all volunteers of any ability and you do not need specialized Tidewell training.
