Hospice Savannah’s volunteer program is currently online. The link will be given to potential volunteers after they’ve filled out the application and spoken with a staff member from our Volunteer Services department. Please call Christy at (912) 629-1048 or Tammie Kennedy at (912) 629-1053 for more information.
Serving as a Hospice Savannah volunteer can challenge you, fill your heart and enrich your life. Our volunteers are men, women and teens (ages 16 – 17) who have a sincere desire to help others and have two to four hours per week to volunteer.
You will be prepared for your role through a free, comprehensive training program. No previous experience in the medical field is necessary. Teens must have parental consent to participate.
After training, we will ask you to submit to a fingerprint criminal background check (in order to comply with the Georgia Long-term Care Background Check Program) and you will meet our Occupational Health Nurse for a health screen and TB testing. Both the COVID-19 and flu vaccinations are required; if you decline the flu vaccine, you must submit a declination form.
If you choose to work with our patients you will receive additional training with our clinical staff.
