Join the Care Partners Board!

A not-for-profit Hospice and Palliative Care Service

Care Partners is a community-based, not-for-profit hospice serving the Portland Metropolitan area for the past 40 years. We provide quality, individualized, "boutique" level palliative and hospice services to over 400 patients and their families each year. Care Partners is a member of the Oregon Nonprofit Hospice Alliance (www.onhanetwork.org).

Care Partners is dedicated to shaping the future of end-of-life care in Oregon. We are working with partners across the state on a new and innovative approach to preserving and developing the unique not-for-profit model for hospice care in Oregon. Care Partners remains focused on the core values of volunteerism, service, compassionate care, and changing how Oregonians live out their final days.

We value diversity and attempt to create a welcoming environment to all. If you have a desire to serve as a member of a dedicated team of professionals and have talents and abilities in one of the following professional fields, we invite you to apply for a position as a member of the Care Partners Board of Directors:

This board role is meant to be an active and engaged role, contributing your talents and interests to make our organization as healthy and successful as it can be; we want to be here for the next 40 years and beyond!

All meetings are currently held by Teams due to the pandemic, but we hope to hold in person meetings in the future at our office in the Cedar Mill area. Meetings may be attended via video or audio conferencing if unable to attend in person in the future with prior notice.

Description

What families say about Care Partners (formerly Hospice of Washington County): "You dear folks are as close to angels on earth as we will see. Thank you so much for the care, concern and comfort you gave "Mary" and us. I don’t know what we would have done without you." "I believe the people at Hospice improved the quality of my father’s life 10 thousand fold were he or we to have tried to do it on our own. From the Shower Aide to the Volunteers, to the Nurses to the Social Workers every single person made my father feel like a priority, never an inconvenience and put purpose and meaning into every moment he had left." "Most amazing was the process from the point of initializing hospice care to the moment when she passed. Being the primary caretaker, I had all the resources I needed both physically and emotionally." "I just wish we had called hospice sooner." The hospice philosophy of care recognizes that dying is not just a medical event but a personal one as well. Whether you elect to serve on the Board, visit patients, share a specific talent, or assist office staff, we value your gifts of time and talent.

As a Volunteer for Care Partners you can make a profound difference in a family’s life as a compassionate and calm presence who understands what they’re going through. Our volunteers share our calling to bring comfort and help to others when they need it the most.
