Spring break will be extended one week for students at the colleges of DCCCD. Classes will not be held March 16-29 as faculty and staff prepare to transition to working, teaching and learning remotely. Please visit
dcccd.edu/coronavirus for additional information.
Description: We serve the entire DFW area and are seeking dependable, friendly visitors to provide companionship and support to patients with life-limiting illnesses and their families. We will train you to be a committed listener (no hands-on care) for the patient/family. Visit in your community those residents in their own homes or facilities we serve. Learn hospice care from the administration standpoint to the patient support care we provide. This is profound, personal, life-learning experience, that by taking on you and the people you serve will never be the same! Background check, negative TB test, two references required and drug screening of all volunteers required. The Administrative volunteers only should be ages 16 and up. Patient support volunteers must be CPR certified (we can provide) and 18 years of age. Email contact person to request a packet and complete TB testing prior to scheduling your orientation. It can take 1-2 weeks to become an active volunteer before starting your hours.
For orientation details, please contact the agency.
