Volunteers help family members take a break to rejuvenate, go shopping or keep appointments. Volunteers are often the highlight of someone's day. Won't you please call and find out how you can make a difference in the life of a person TODAY!

Please contact us at 757-561-2880 for an application packet and training information. You can also find more information and do the application online at www.ghospice.com. If you do the application online choose Williamsburg as the location even though you will be volunteering in Gloucester.

We currently have a strong need for female volunteers in this area.

Mission Statement

For each employee to treat every patient as their own treasured loved one, providing care that affords a quality of life that outweighs quantity of day, and supports caregivers as their hearts find healing

Description

Hospice care is not just for the patient. It also provides emotional support for the entire family. Hospice is a philosophy of caring for patients whose medical conditions are not responding to treatment or for those patients who choose not to seek agressive medical care at the end stage of life. Our program is for patients who are considered terminal and are expected to live six months or less if the disease follows its natural course, although many patients outlive this time frame. Our philosophy focuses on comfort care not currative care. Our goal is for the patient to remain as comfortable and pain-free as possible in their own home or the home of a loved one through the end of life. We also serve patients who are living in long-term and assisted living facilities.
