26 yrs old
Part-time Companion Care Available
During the course of a year I was a hospice volunteer for a local organization in my community. During my time with this organization I had patients that I visited on a weekly basis to meet the needs of my patients and their families during their end of life journey. I was provided with training's on caring for the terminally ill by providing that extra bit of care and comfort by providing that extra hand to hold or ear to listen. I also had the opportunity to work with a team of individuals that work to meet the social, emotional, physical, medical, and spiritual needs of the patient and learn how to meet my patient where they are. This experience taught me to have a greater appreciation for life and understanding what is truly important.
