Grace Hospice of Norfolk is looking for volunteers in Virginia Beach to visit patients. You will spend time sitting with the patient while the caregiver run errands. The caregiver is looking for someone who can spend at least 1 hour at the home so they can complete their tasks. The day of the week is pretty flexible but they would like someone that can come on a weekly basis if possible. To fill out an application go to www.ghospice.com and choose the volunteering tab. Please choose Norfolk as the location even though you will be volunteering in Virginia Beach. If you have any questions, please contact me and I will get back with you as soon as I can. Thank you!
236 Clearfield AVe, Suite 209, Virginia Beach, VA 23462, US
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
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 desease 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.
