Volunteers Needed for Patient Comfort Programs

Milford Regional Medical Center (Milford Regional) is recruiting volunteers for two new patient comfort programs. Both programs provide caring support for patients undergoing cancer treatment, as well as those who are very ill or near end of life.

Hand massage volunteers offer relaxation and comfort to patients during treatment at Milford Regional's Cancer Center or Infusion Suite. Volunteers commit to a three-hour time schedule once a week. They are required to attend a six-hour training session provided by a licensed massage therapist from Dana-Farber Cancer Institute at Milford Regional.

Compassionate Companion volunteers provide companionship to very ill or dying patients that don't have family or friends available to stay with them. A Compassionate Companion offers comfort through talking, reading or simply sitting with the patient during this difficult time. Comfort carts provide access to soothing music and reading materials. Schedules are created based upon the volunteer's availability. Shifts are generally four hours in length. Training for this program is mandatory.

For more information on the new patient comfort programs or to volunteer, call Elaine Willey, director of volunteer services at Milford Regional, at 508-422-2263; or email her at ewilley@milreg.org.
