AseraCare Hospice

Aseracare is looking for Veterans who are interested in volunteering to be part of our Journey of Honor team, a unique program that focuses on the particular needs of Veterans under hospice care. At Aseracare, volunteers are the embodiment of our hospice philosophies and play a vital role in the care for our patients every day. Volunteers provide our patients and families with support both emotionally and physically when it is needed the most. Veteran volunteers will visit with our Veteran patients and provide companionship, emotional support, and a therapeutic dialogue that can only come from another Veteran. Volunteers will also have the opportunity to support our honor ceremonies which take place throughout the community and honor hundreds of Veterans. Aseracare knows that our Veteran patients have unique perspectives, experiences, and reflections to which only another Veteran can relate, and Veteran volunteers are a cornerstone to the successful care of our Veteran patients. We would be honored if you would join our team.

Mission Statement

AseraCare Hospice serves to focus our available resources to meet the emotional, spiritual and physical needs of our patients and families with a sense of compassion and dignity. We express this through ongoing gentle acts of kindness and sympathy. We preserve the dignity of death for our patients and families by making pain management, comfort and quality of life our primary goals. AseraCare Hospice believes that through compassionate support and the promotion of a caring environment, patients and families may be able to attain a degree of mental and spiritual preparation for death that is satisfactory to them.

Description

Our volunteers commit to enhancing our patients' and families quality of life by providing various services. We strive to help our patients remain as independent as possible for as long as possible, in familiar surroundings. Volunteers are integral to the hospice team. Volunteers provide both direct and indirect services. We encourage use of time and talent to enhance patient, family and volunteers' lives. Training and orientation is offered to all incoming volunteers at various levels.

If you are a surviving family member, we encourage you to wait a minimum of one year following the patient's death to serve as a direct care volunteer or in public relations activities.
