No One Dies Alone

Volunteer to be a companion at Dove Healthcare - West Eau Claire, and offer support to those who are dying. From time to time, residents have neither family nor friends to be with them as they near the end of their life. Even when loved ones are able to be present, they may need to take an occasional break away. Whether it is a willingness to hold a hand, fluff a pillow, or just be present, volunteers perform a variety of comfort care measures.

To volunteer, complete the application and return it for screening and background check. Once approved, you must attend a training session. Volunteers are required to maintain the complete confidentiality of each resident and respect their spirituality. Call 715-552-1030 for more information.
