Organization Description

A*Med Community Hospice is a high quality, comprehensive, palliative program dedicated to promoting comfort and quality of life for clients and families facing illness. In recognition that facing a life-limiting disease is much more than a physical experience, A*med Community Hospice utilizes an interdisciplinary team approach to provide a services for clients and families. As human beings, we experience emotional, spiritual and physical losses during the dying process. Through meeting the numerous needs of clients and families, we strive to enable clients to live life to the fullest extent possible and families to adjust to life after loss.

Description of Internship
The volunteer Intern will complete orientation, attend Interdisciplinary team meetings, shadow RNs, Chaplins, and Social Workers, and assist in special project. Special Projects may consist of delivery of food, assisting in applying for community assistance, pickup and delivery of special items (like air conditioners or heaters, fire alarms, etc.), helping move furniture, cleaning pathways for easy access for patients, and more. We also offer direct patient help, including doing friendly visits for home patients or nursing patients. Interns may help in quarterly presentations, research, and video presentations for grief support monthly meeting. Interns will assist the volunteer department special program with youth volunteers, who are 16 years old and older. We have a new program called Virtual Volunteering where you “Check in” with clients starting on Friday and ending on Sunday; you are given a list of clients, and you contact patients on a daily to make sure patients who live alone are doing “ok”.
