BHS NORTHCARE HOSPICE NorthCare Hospice

NorthCare Hospice is always looking for dedicated and caring people to become a volunteer. Patient interaction volunteers can volunteer either in our 16 bed hospice house located inside North Kansas City Hospital, or by visiting patients in nursing homes, assisted livings, or their homes. Hospice house volunteers will visit the patients and interact with the patients families. These patients are often closer to the end of life. Those volunteers who visit patients outside the hospice house will be offering friendly visits for companionship, and may include playing cards, reading, painting nails, or just visiting.  

 

The duties and time required for each volunteer position vary. This allows each student to choose a program that is rewarding and allows for a wide variety of scheduling needs.

Students must completed a volunteer profile, background check, 2 step TB screening and drug test.  Copies of driver's license, social security card and auto insurance is required.
