Hosparus Health seeking volunteers

From Local Sources

JASPER — Not-for-profit hospice and palliative care provider Hosparus Health of Southern Indiana needs volunteers in Dubois County.

Depending on their interests, volunteers provide companionship and respite to patients and their caregivers, and help with administrative duties, bereavement care, outreach, fundraising and special events.

The organization is also in need of licensed specialty volunteers to provide hair care and massage therapy to homebound patients, as well as military veterans to visit with veteran patients.

Hosparus Health of Southern Indiana has one office in New Albany and will be open a second location in mid-August at 225 W. 41st Street, Suite C, in Jasper. The new office will offer comprehensive hospice care and palliative care to seriously ill patients and families in Dubois, Perry, Orange, Crawford, Daviess, Martin, Pike and Spencer counties.

Hosparus Health carefully selects volunteers and provides them with comprehensive training specially designed to meet the needs of patients and families. Volunteers must have available transportation and complete training and an application process.

To learn more or to set up a date for training, contact Volunteer Manager Vonya Gresham at vgresham@hosparus.org or 812-542-2809. Volunteer applications are also available online at HosparusHealth.org/volunteer.
