The Comfort Companion Program offers patients the most valuable of human gifts: a dignified death. Trained volunteers will provide a comforting, reassuring presence for patients and families. Sometimes this involves holding their hand, reading aloud, or playing soothing music.
What to Expect:
Flexible shifts (based on your availability) that will typically last for two to four hours. Training and ongoing support are provided, with an emphasis on providing comfort during the dying process. Shifts are scheduled 24 hours a day, so night and weekend availability is necessary.
The application process will include an electronic application, interview (for non-Moffitt volunteers and team members), health screening, orientation and training. The next training day is TBD.
Current Moffitt volunteers and team members are encouraged to apply.
