Wellness Call Check-in Program
The Wellness Call Check-in Program is DVHS’s response to COVID-19. Hospice volunteers are matched with clients within the communities of OK Falls, Oliver and Osoyoos who are either living in retirement residences or their own homes. Volunteers call to “check-in”, providing connection, audio-socialization, relieve anxiety, give information on community and healthcare resources. Information is provided from the DVHS Oliver/Osoyoos Community Resource Booklet.
Our Hospice Volunteers have training in Communications (Listening, Reflection of Feelings, Empathy) and Bereavement. Many volunteers want to help during the coronavirus and this program facilitates that without physical contact.
If you know someone who would benefit from this program, encourage them to register or with their consent register them.
