Journey Hospice is looking for student volunteers! If interested contact Jim Louviere @504.202.8334
- Volunteers can spend as much or as little time as they want with this community service program. Maybe one hour/week or month is a suggestion.
- Volunteers can do things like read to the patient, provide pet care or therapy, music therapy, take part in the bi-weekly meetings of the medical and support team, help with the yard or the home, help with meals, general hands on care, companionship and maybe make small gift items to encourage patients are some examples.
- Volunteers need to contact me to fill out a volunteer packet in order to be approved.
Hospice is about providing support and comfort to patients and their family who are facing end of life issues. So students who are working on counseling, social work or pre med programs might be interested in such community service. Or simply students with compassion who would like to make a meaningful impact on people lives.
