Reflections/ Life Review Volunteers

AseraCare Hospice’s mission is to share our passion for improving quality of life through innovative healthcare, one person, one family and one community at a time. We are dedicated to providing hospice services as a way to improve the lives of patients and their families as they transition through the post-acute care continuum

Reflections/ Life Review Volunteers make a concentrated effort to walk through a Life-Review process with a patient. Patients gain great comfort and meaning in the process of sharing their life stories. Many volunteers will record the patient and/or type up their stories into a booklet or scrapbook format for posterity. Others will capture words and photos on a Power Point program which can be used at a memorial service and as a lasting legacy for the family.

Hospice volunteers describe their work as gratifying, intellectually stimulating, and emotionally meaningful. Hospices require a lot from their volunteers and value them greatly.

Volunteers are provided free training and TB test and can work flexible hours that suit their individual schedules.

We serve facilities throughout Milwaukee and its suburbs including Brookfield, Cudahy, Oak Creek, Freedonia, Cedarburg, Pewaukee, Sussex, Watertown, Glendale, Kenosha, Racine, Lake Geneva, Pleasant Prairie, St Francis and more -- so volunteers can serve within 10-15 miles of their home.
