Ongoing - Any Baby Can

Any Baby Can’s Volunteer Program : We are always looking for volunteers to assist us with child supervision, this is supervision of children with autism and their siblings. Volunteers will need to fill out the attached application and a background check will be ran, at no cost to the volunteer. We also ask volunteers to take a TB Test, this can be done at any WellMed location on a Monday thru Wednesday. Please have the volunteer notify Rosie Arismendez, included in this email, of what WellMed location they will be visiting and when. Rosie will then contact WellMed on behalf of the volunteer so that the volunteer is not charged for the test.

 

To sign up to volunteer, contact Rosie via email or at (210) 547-3009.

Ongoing - Hospice Care

New Century Hospice is dedicated to completing life’s journey by embracing life.  Hospice is a program of care and support for a person diagnosed with a terminal illness and comfort care is desired. Helping people find meaning and peace is at the core of our mission.  At New Century Hospice, our program supports early involvement where a dramatic difference in the quality of life can be experienced. By enabling families and loved ones to participate in the care experience, we are able to make the remaining time more meaningful, dignified and comfortable.

Volunteers are an integral part of the hospice team. As a friend and companion to the patient, volunteers also support caregivers by allowing them some free time and relief from their daily responsibilities and stress.  Hospice volunteers also provide a number of services such as bereavement support and help in the office. 

Time spent volunteering depends on your flexibility and the needs of our patients.  Currently we are in need of volunteers a few hours, once a week in the following areas -

 Patient Support 

Volunteers provide companionship to the patient and simply offer an open heart for serving others in need.  Hospice volunteers help through visiting, reading, taking walks, writing letters, listening to or playing music, caring for pets, supervising visits with pets, and even massage therapy for volunteers with the necessary skills.

 Family Member and Caregiver Support 

Volunteers can assist with shopping or basic household chores.  They can also stay with the patient for short periods of time permitting family caregivers time to themselves.  Family members also appreciate a visit from a compassionate friend who understands what they are going through.

 If you would like to make a difference – to give back – please contact us to learn more about hospice volunteering opportunities.
