After writing about wanting to find somewheres where I can volunteer. BabyGirl's friend had posted on Facebook that June was not her month. I felt like God was sending me a sign so I set up a fundraiser here. You can also find the widget on my home page of this blog. I am begging you, if you have a spare dollar, it would be so appreciated if you would donate.
That same day I reread the blog post and prayed. I thanked him for giving me the direction with Victoria.
I also talked to my mom. I told her my inner conflicts. She told me what she was doing for her Hospice client and explained to me what Hospice duties a volunteer can do. She suggested since I was unsure I should write or call the Volunteer Coordinator.
So I emailed the Coordinator, summarized what I was thinking and what led me to the organization.
She told me I sounded so sweet like my Mom. She suggested I go there and talk with her. So I did a few days later.
I talked candidly to her about my reservations working with the patients directly.
Although I know Cancer is not contagious, family members around could be ill and I have a low immune system.
I've worked with the elderly and tend to get attached to them. When they die I take it hard sometimes.
I want to volunteer but I don't want to 7 days a week.
I told her about my near death experiences although she knew some of it from my mom.
She explained the things a volunteer can do. There were many I could be interested in.
So I filled completed the paper work. They have to do a criminal background check etc. In September I go to the training class.
After talking to the sweet volunteer coordinator and with three individuals telling me I could help with Hospice, I think God is helping me along the way.
I think it is closest to nursing that I'll get.
I am researching on the burial idea. It will definitely be complicated but have not made a definitive decision yet.
Do you know anyone who worked at Hospice or was a client?
