At Hospice Visions, Inc we recruit, train and place volunteers with patients and their families to help them make the most of every day...in their own home, Assisted Living Center, Skilled Nursing Facility or wherever where they live. There are no time requirements, you can volunteer as much or as little as you'd like or as your schedule permits. Volunteers typically visit with patients, read out loud to the patient and sometimes others that are in the vicinity, play music from their mobile devices or the piano that exists in most living centers or with their own portable instruments, craft projects, writing letters, respite for the patients' caregiver, life legacy video recording and editing. Hospice Visions provides orientation, training, and recognition.
Hospice Visions Inc. MISSION STATEMENT Hospice Visions Inc. is a 501(3)(c)nonprofit, community based and supported organization. When cure is no longer possible, the Hospice team provides professional care designed to meet the physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs of patients and their loved ones who are coping with a life-limiting illness and related losses. Hospice is committed to educating the community on issues of death, dying, quality of life and bereavement. Care is provided without regard to personal beliefs or financial status.
Hospice care is the model for quality, compassionate care. Each client has a personalized plan of care that meets each patient's individual needs for pain management and symptom control, as well as emotional and spiritual support. The plan is developed by the hospice team members including doctors, nurses, health care aides, social workers, chaplain, therapists, and volunteers.
The plan outlines the medical and support services required, such as nursing care and personal care, physician visits and counseling, as well as medical equipment, medications and treatments necessary to provide high quality comfort care.
Through partnerships with long-term care facilities, assisted living centers, and adult care homes, hospice can enhance the care provided to residents by utilizing the hospice professional's expertise.
Hospice Visions, Inc. affirms life. The goal of the hospice team is to be sensitive and responsive to the special requirements of each individual and family.
Hospice Visions, Inc. accepts patients of any age including pediatric patients.
Advance Directives are important for everyone, not just hospice patients. Anyone, at any age, can be confronted with a serious accident or illness. It is up to each of us to express our wishes on paper so that our loved ones can make decisions we would want to make for ourselves when we are incapable. Completing an Advance Directive, such as a Living Will, allows you to do this.
