Community Ambassador Program

People touched by hospice are a wonderful resource for those who want to learn more about hospice as an end-of-life care option. The Elizabeth Hospice is mobilizing an informal person-to-person network with the goal of increasing awareness, approachability, and understanding of hospice.

The Elizabeth Hospice Community Ambassadors assist in spreading the word about this difficult, yet important, topic. Spreading the word about hospice care can be done individually or through groups and organizations such as your church or service club. Telling a friend about hospice, who may benefit from this service, is a wonderful way to let them know you care.

Community Ambassadors can support the organization’s outreach efforts through a variety of opportunities:

  • Hosting an information table at a Health/Community/Church Fair
  • Distributing information, brochures, volunteer flyers, etc. to local business, senior centers, libraries, and other areas of interest.
  • Participate in the Speakers Bureau, presenting “Hospice 101” as requested in the community.
  • Participate in public policy events, supporting hospice and palliative care initiatives and sharing information with elected officials in your area.

How to Get Started

Our Community Ambassadors will be provided with training and resources, as appropriate for the outreach initiative they participate in.
