Sweetness and Grace!

What if you had a recording of your grandma simply saying, "I love you, honey," or of your father saying, "You're a wonderful daughter and I know you will always be okay."

Legacy projects are a beautiful way for us to invite our patients to share memories, stories, life lessons and important messages near the end of their lives - which then become treasured keepsakes for hospice families. Voice recordings, scrapbooking, and creating booklets and visual art pieces are just some of the ways that legacy projects take form. Elaborate or simple all are sacred and meaningful.

Our Legacy projects provide hospice families something tangible to hold on to, and something that can provide comfort and healing year after year, and generation after generation.

Legacy Volunteers complete our Patient Care Training, followed by additional training in life review interviewing techniques and planning with the Hospice Team concerning the type of project to be done.

Mission Statement

Serving people with compassion and dignity.

Description

COMPASSIONATE ABOUT CARE. passionate about life.

At Good Shepherd Hospice, we believe that health care is more than just a diagnosis and a treatment. It's a daily exercise in making this moment...this today...the very best it can be. We're here to help our patients achieve that goal - physically, mentally, spiritually...and for whatever that means individually.

We believe that in the passing of a person’s life, there are also extraordinary opportunities for compassion, reconciliation, spiritual healing, and renewal.

Our Volunteers play a vital role in our Hospice program. From working in the office, to creating special projects at home, to visiting to provide companionship and ease lonliness, Good Shepherd Hospice Volunteers make special moments happen again and again for the patients and families we serve.
