VOLUNTEERS

The hospice volunteer is perhaps the most valuable member of Transitions LifeCare Team. Hospice volunteers come from all walks of life. They range in age from young to more mature. A volunteer may have been a spouse or family member of a former patient. They may be a high school or college student. In some cases, a volunteer is a former patient themselves.

Our volunteers are key members of The Hospice team which help adults and children focus on quality of life when dealing with serious illness, grief and loss. Whether you choose to work directly with patients and families or to volunteer in many other ways, you’ll be making a difference in someone’s life.

As a volunteer, there are many options and kinds of volunteer service activities. Hold a hand. Talk about life experiences. Computer things. Plan a golf tournament. Address envelopes. Feed a pet. Make a speech. Bake a cake. Clean a house. Listen to cherished memories. Pat a shoulder. Give a hug. Touch a heart. Change a life (more than likely your own). Volunteer assignments are thoroughly discussed and planned with each volunteer, ensuring the right fit for the volunteer and Transitions Lifecare. Assignments are dynamic, and can change with needs, as well as the desires of the volunteer and TLC. The goal is to place the right volunteer into the right assignment, so that the volunteer experience is both gratifying and appreciated, resulting in a positive value for this community.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, below are just a few of the volunteer opportunities throughout Tulsa and the surrounding area with TLC:

  • Patient and family support
  • Patient Companion
  • Administrative Services
  • We Honor Veterans Companion
  • No One Dies Alone (NODA) Companion
  • Community information and outreach
  • Special events and assignments
  • …and much, much more

We also have a program that enables High School students to make hospice volunteering a part of their educational experience. In addition, we encourage Veteran-to-veteran volunteers for our Veteran patients and families. Though you do not need to be a Veteran to be a volunteer for a Veteran patient and family, our involvement in caring for our heroic Veteran population is something we take very seriously. We encourage all potential volunteers to research caring for veterans at the end of life by visiting WeHonorVeterans.org (WHV) for additional information and resources, to help with your decision to become a volunteer with Veterans. Our WHV campaign is included in all new volunteer orientation and training.
