Bon Secours Hospice is about compassionate care. This ideal has guided us during almost 30 years of helping thousands of patients and their families. Our experience with end-of-life care has shown us that honesty and heartfelt kindness are as important as sound medical care.

The goal of the Volunteer Good Help Caller is to make calls one afternoon a week, from 2:00pm to about 4:30pm, to check on the patients and familes in Hospice. Sometimes families will have requests and concerns that you may not be able to answer. You will always have someone available to assist you in those instances. Much of the time, you will find that you spend a good bit of time talking with the family and giving them a moment to share their feelings.

If you're a people person and would like to help our families, please apply to this position.

We're looking forward to having you on the team!

Mission Statement

Bon Secours Hampton Roads

Rooted in our Catholic Health Ministry, we will be known as the leading health care system in providing compassionate and innovative care for the whole person. Through our employees and in collaboration with our physicians and other partners, we will seek to improve the health of our community

Description

Bon Secours Hospice provides an individualized program of physical, emotional, spiritual, and practical care for people in the last phases of a life-limiting illness, with an emphasis on control of pain and other symptoms. The program is reflective of a spirit and idea of caring that emphasizes comfort and dignity for the dying, making it possible for them to remain independent for as long as possible, in familiar surroundings. Hospice care is centered on both the patient and family/caregiver. Hospice personnel respect and respond to the unique differences in family/caregiver, lifestyle, values, and wishes.

Utilizing an interdisciplinary group approach of physicians, nurses, social workers, therapists, homemakers, hospice aides, volunteers, spiritual counselors, bereavement counselors, and others, Bon Secours Hospice provides palliative care in the home, short-term inpatient services, mobilization and coordination of ancillary services, and bereavement support. Services will be equitably distributed to a medically and financially diversified group of patients in a cost-effective manner which ensures adherence to the goals of Bon Secours Hospice and the maintenance of the financial solvency of the organization.

Hospice affirms life.

Hospice exists to provide support and care for persons in the last phases of a life-limiting illness so that they may live as fully and comfortably as possible.

Hospice exists in the belief that through appropriate care and the promotion of a caring community, patients and family/caregivers will be free to attain a degree of mental preparation for death that is satisfying to them.
