My name is Kristine, and I am the Volunteer Coordinator for Carle Hospice. We are in need of volunteers to help provide respite care and companionship for our hospice patients. We do not ask volunteers to provide any type of health services, however, you still get direct patient contact. Volunteers can participate in tasks such as listening to their concerns, reading to the patients, writing a letter, and being a support person for them. We truly value our volunteers because they have the potential to help make someone’s last moments their best moments.
I have attached the application needed to apply. I hope you are able to pass this information on to anyone who may be interested. Applications can and sent to me at Kristine.Park@carle.com or mailed to 206 W. Anthony Drive, Champaign, IL 61822. . Please let me know if you have any questions. You can reach me at this email or call me at (217) 383-8721.
