Heart Hands

Brookdale Hospice provides an individualized program of physical, emotional, and practical care for the patient, with emphasis on pain control and symptom management. Hospice care represents a full spectrum of care designed to respect the dignity of an individual facing a terminal illness. Our program is a reflection of our spirit of caring. We emphasize comfort, dignity and respect. We believe that centering our focus on both the patient and the family enables us to provide the best care.

As a Hospice Volunteer you are specially trained to support the patient and family in a variety of ways: companionship visits for patient and family, spiritual support Volunteer, Vigil Volunteer (sitting with someone who is actively dying), helping provide clerical office support, bereavement visits / support calls, or participating in special projects.

To utilize your caring heart and be a part of the Brookdale Hospice Team, please contact us now! For more information please call Tonya Choate, Volunteer Coordinator at 817-633-9125.

We are currently not seeing patients in the Senior Living communities, but with agreement and using CDC guidelines, we can visit them if they are living at home.

Serious interested parties only, please. **Must be able to pass a drug screen, background check, and TB 2-step test.**

Mission Statement

Our Mission Statement is simple but powerful: Enriching the lives of those we serve with compassion, respect, excellence and integrity.

Description

Life is much more than physical health; it is also the dignity of the human spirit. When physical health begins to fail, the nurturing of the spirit becomes increasingly important. Hospice care is a service that aids the transition between living and dying by providing respect, care, comfort, and support to patients and families.

Brookdale Hospice volunteers provide important support to the care of our patients and families.

Brookdale Hospice serves primarily residents at Brookdale Senior Living communities and the surrounding neighborhoods. We are CHAP accredited and a member of the NHPCO.
