Ongoing - Hospice Care

New Century Hospice is dedicated to completing life’s journey by embracing life.  Hospice is a program of care and support for a person diagnosed with a terminal illness and comfort care is desired. Helping people find meaning and peace is at the core of our mission.  At New Century Hospice, our program supports early involvement where a dramatic difference in the quality of life can be experienced. By enabling families and loved ones to participate in the care experience, we are able to make the remaining time more meaningful, dignified and comfortable.

Volunteers are an integral part of the hospice team. As a friend and companion to the patient, volunteers also support caregivers by allowing them some free time and relief from their daily responsibilities and stress.  Hospice volunteers also provide a number of services such as bereavement support and help in the office. 

Time spent volunteering depends on your flexibility and the needs of our patients.  Currently we are in need of volunteers a few hours, once a week in the following areas -

 Patient Support 

Volunteers provide companionship to the patient and simply offer an open heart for serving others in need.  Hospice volunteers help through visiting, reading, taking walks, writing letters, listening to or playing music, caring for pets, supervising visits with pets, and even massage therapy for volunteers with the necessary skills.

 Family Member and Caregiver Support 

Volunteers can assist with shopping or basic household chores.  They can also stay with the patient for short periods of time permitting family caregivers time to themselves.  Family members also appreciate a visit from a compassionate friend who understands what they are going through.

 If you would like to make a difference – to give back – please contact us to learn more about hospice volunteering opportunities.

Ongoing - THRUproject Mentoring

 The mission of THRU Project is to see former foster youth to independent living by providing guidance, advocacy and real world solutions to the immediate obstacles preventing them from reaching their goals of education and career. We are dedicated to providing former foster youth an opportunity to elevate their lives with the support of a THRU Project Advisor.

Each year, approximately 1,500 foster youth in Texas leave the state’s care, many without a permanent home or family to provide them with support in their first years of adulthood.  More importantly, many leave without a trusted adult to lean on  for help.

Without support:

- Former foster youth are more than twice as likely to drop out of school

- Nearly half of all girls will be pregnant at least once by age 19

- 30% of boys will be incarcerated by age 19

- Only half will be employed four years after independence

One caring adult to be that connection between the youth and the services they  need can help them achieve a life of independence instead of becoming another statistic.  Becoming a mentor means telling a former foster youth they are not alone anymore.  

Contact the THRU Project to learn how just a few hours a month can make change the life of youth leaving foster care.

Ongoing - Goody Bags for the Terminally ill

Oputm Palliative and Hospice Care  

Creating Goody bags for the Terminally Ill and their Caregivers. Adding a pair of socks, rice crispy treats, granola bars, peanut butter crackers, gummy bears and maybe some sugar free items for our folks who have Diabetes is just an example of what can be added to a small brown paper bag. Also, these small brown bags can be decorated and may include a small wish inside for them to wish them well. This is a great group volunteer project. Because twenty folks can bring one item and fill many small brown paper bags until the snacks are gone. These mean so much to Optum's terminally ill patients and their caregivers. They feel the humanitarianism is alive. 

If you need other creative ideas, call Optum's volunteer Coordinator, Janet Garza 

Where: 5835 Callaghan Rd, Suite 400San Antonio, TX78228 

When: It's flexible! We'll work with your schedule.
