Karman Legacy Hospice

Karman Legacy Hospice Volunteer Program

Hospices depend on their volunteers. Without the efforts of volunteers, hospices could not continue their important work. Patients and families depend on hospice care. No one else provides the kind of services that hospice does. By attending to the needs of both the patients and their loved ones, hospice care can be a huge comfort for the entire family.

Hospice Volunteers
serve in many ways.

  • Keep the patient company
  • Listen to concerns
  • Be a support person
  • Read aloud
  • Help staff with office work and other behind-the-scenes tasks

Duties will vary depending on the patient’s and family’s needs as well as what the volunteer is able and comfortable doing.

Minimum Hospice Volunteer Requirements

The requirements for hospice volunteers have been put together by combining state regulations with those of Stillwater Medical’s Karman Legacy Hospice.

Volunteers are required to complete 12 hours of well-rounded self-directed core training and to attend at least three in-services a year. In-services are similar to most organization meetings: a discussion topic and/or speaker, announcements, and food. Additional training is required for volunteers who wish to learn more about bereavement and how to help families with the grief they experience after losing a loved one. Confidentiality forms, background checks, fingerprinting, and inoculations are also required for those who wish to volunteer. All volunteers are invited to participate in special events and parties. We ask our volunteers to do as much—or as little—as they can.
