Enriching the Community an Hour at a Time

BDCH is incredibly blessed to have such a wonderful team of volunteers to support services throughout the organization.

This past year, volunteer efforts accounted for 40,922 hours of service at BDCH. This commitment helps deliver organizational excellence to our region. Volunteers play an important role in supporting Excellence Delivered for every patient, resident, visitor and child, every day.

Volunteers are diverse in their backgrounds and ages. Student volunteers interested in pursuing careers in health care find BDCH an exciting place to observe health care professionals at work.

Newcomers to the community find that volunteering helps them to become familiar with the hospital’s programs and services. Parents of school-age children find that flexible volunteer schedules fit their busy lifestyles. Retirees and “empty nesters” contribute their time and experience regularly, making a real difference in the lives of so many of their fellow community members.

One thing all BDCH volunteers have in common is their generosity. They give of themselves by sharing their goodwill, energy, and abilities in many ways. To request an application for volunteer service at Beaver Dam Community Hospital, please call our Volunteer Office at 920-887-5988, or e-mail dmoritz@bdch.org.

Hospice Volunteers

The BDCH Hillside Hospice Program is looking for volun­teers to contribute to the qual­ity, compassionate, end-of-life care it provides.

Volunteers are trained in palliative care, communica­tion, listening skills, belief systems, bereavement and safety. Training takes place using the Hospice Volunteer Training Series, listening to a DVD and working through a workbook either individually or in a group.

Volunteers provide many services, including lawn mowing or housekeeping, driving a client to a visit, run­ning errands, helping finish the legacy of a journal or photo book, and providing visits and caregiver relief for needed respite.

Hospice volunteers commit to one to four hours of service a week. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer or learning more, call Cassie Rockefeller at 920-887-4185.
