Preferred Hospice is a Missouri-based company comprised of a multidisciplinary team of Healthcare workers who specialize in end-of-life care. Among the senior team are Physician and Nurses who together bring over 50 years of Healthcare experience.
Our mission is to have a positive impact on the lives of those we serve, inspire through example, and encourage celebration of life. We will assist with emotional peace of mind and both physical and spiritual healing.
Our Direct Patient Care Volunteers provide companionship through emotional support and comfort. Volunteers may visit with patients, read to them, or simply hold their hand so they may rest peacefully. Volunteers become a friend to patients who may not otherwise have one.
Our Office and Administrative Volunteers assist our office staff with a variety of tasks. We often need assistance with special projects, data input, or mail outs.
We serve patients within an hour radius of our home office in Ozark, MO. We provide education, training, and mileage reimbursement. We ask our volunteers to give us a minimum of 4 hours each month, but more is appreciated. We have an application process that also includes a background check. The background check takes 2-3 days. If you are interested in volunteering with us, please call us to schedule a time to meet. We will further discuss our opportunities, fill out the needed paperwork, and schedule a time to do your orientation. After orientation is complete, we will then schedule a time to introduce you to your patient or patients! You can then make your own hours and visit with patients when it is convenient for you.
We are looking forward to meeting you.
