McCortney Family Hospice volunteers provide companionship, caring and support for people who are at the most vulnerable and challenging point in their lives. Volunteering in the hospice field is a uniquely fulfilling opportunity and gives you the chance to help those who need it most.
There are several ways you can help, and volunteers may contribute as few or as many hours as they wish, on a flexible schedule of their choosing. Typically, a volunteer assignment takes one hour a week and consists of a one-hour visit to an assigned patient.
McCortney volunteers are divided into several categories:
A background check and three personal references are required for every applicant prior to training. All volunteers, except those who do not see patients, also must have a two-step TB (tuberculosis) test, performed in our office. Both the background check and the TB test are provided free of charge.
If you would like more information, please contact our volunteer coordinator, Staci Elder Hensley, at either 405-360-2400 or 580-332-6900.
