About

Do you have a passion to help those who have lost loved ones?

AseraCare Hospice provides continual support to our patients' familys after the end of life. We are part of our patients' loved ones for 13 months; providing support to the caregivers, and other loved ones of each patient. For those that have experienced the death of someone who was very important to them, they might be finding it very difficult to adjust to the immense changes happening in their life right now. Grief can cast a negative cloud in our life by shaking everything up - your beliefs, your personality, and even your sense of reality.

Bereavement support may be able to provide relief during these very difficult times. Talking about the loss often allows a person to adjust to their new life with all its changes - good and bad. Keeping things bottled up or denying the sadness could prolong the pain. Any loss has to be acknowledged for us to move forward. Bereavement support tries to help clients find a place for their loss so they can carry on with life and eventually find acceptance.

AseraCare is looking for a Bereavement Volunteer to assist our Bereavement coordinator a few times a month, volunteer would make calls to family member, send cards, and other office work to assist Bereavment coordinator.

We believe that with the care and passion our volunteers provide, makes the world a brighter place!

If interested please contact the Volunteer Coordinator for more information.
