Volunteers Needed For New Patient Sitter Program


LACONIA-LRGHealthcare is proud to introduce the Hospital Sitter Volunteer program.  The Hospital Sitter Program is about improving the care, health and wellbeing of patients. Hospital sitters will provide one-on-one companionship to patients.  As a volunteer Hospital sitter you may read, talk, play games, or just provide companionship to a patient.
Hospital sitters will be a valuable resource to many families that are unable to take time off to be in the hospital with family members who are patients. Sitters will provide these families with peace of mind knowing that a caring person is with their sick loved one. Sitters will operate under the direct supervision of the patient’s nurse.
LRGHealthcare volunteer services is searching for compassionate, caring, personable and reliable volunteers to become Hospital Sitters. Are you thinking of switching to a healthcare career? Are you in a healthcare program and are looking for hospital experience? What a great way to give back to your community and help out! Volunteer applicants must be 18 years of age or older.  Volunteer shifts are available 7 days a week from 8a.m.-12p.m., 12p.m.-4:00 p.m., 4p.m.-8p.m. or for those night owls 8p.m.-12a.m.  Still interested and are unable to commit to a 4 hour shift - contact us and we will find the best hours to fit your schedule.
