Volunteers are an important part of the hospice team. Whether it’s providing companionship to a person in the final months and weeks of life, offering support to family members and caregivers, helping around the office with various administrative tasks, or assisting with community outreach, the contributions of volunteers are essential to the important work provided by Healing Care Hospice.
Hospice care in the U.S. was founded by volunteers and there is continued commitment to volunteer service - in fact, Medicare regulations require that hospices have trained volunteers as a part of the services they provide.
By being a hospice volunteer, you can gain great personal satisfaction from knowing that you have made an impact in another person’s life and in your community.
Our office is located in the City of Downey but our patients are located throughout Los Angeles County, Orange County, and the South Bay so we can place you where you feel most comfortable.
About Healing Care Hospice
8255 Firestone blvd, Suite 403, Downey, CA 90241, US
At Healing Care Hospice, our mission is to provide compassionate and skilled hospice care so that our patients and their families can live in comfort, have peace of mind, and experience healing when cure is not possible. We aim to enhance quality of life and preserve dignity throughout the progression of a life-limiting illness by focusing intently on the individual needs of each patient and family. We look at the patient and the family as a single unit and recognize that family support is essential to quality hospice care.
Hospice is a philosophy of care that focuses on enhancing quality of life and preserving dignity for a person with a life-limiting disease. The focus of hospice is on comfort and support rather than curative treatment. Hospice care relies on the combined knowledge and skills of a team of professionals to coordinate care tailored to meet the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of each patient and family. Hospice care is typically provided in the patient’s home, but it may also be provided in assisted living facilities, skilled nursing facilities, and freestanding hospice centers.
Hospice Means Healing
Our approach to care is based on our belief that we can make a positive impact on the lives of our patients and their families. Our name begins with healing because we understand that while cure is not always possible, healing is. We strongly believe that quality hospice care promotes not only physical comfort, but also emotional and spiritual healing for the patient and family. We provide ongoing grief and bereavement support to help the patient and family cope with the many losses that occur during the course of a terminal illness, and we encourage and support the patient and family to seek out opportunities for personal growth, reconnection, and reconciliation.
We'll work with your schedule.
