Volunteers Are Needed For Grace Hospice

Our organization works 24 hours a day 7 days a week to keep our patients comfortable and safe. That is why we would love for 2 volunteers to come on Thursdays for a couple of hours and tuck in our patients for the weekend! This opportunity would include calling our patients or their caregivers to see if they need any supplies before the weekend. With those calls we also have a series of questions that are asked on a weekly or monthly basis to make sure we are meeting our patient's expectations. With the proper training, a volunteer would be able to contact the patient and possibly meet them by delivering supplies if our staff cannot do it before weekend. This will give you a hands on feel and allows you to interact with our patients. Are you interested? Please do not hesitate! Contact me, Haley, at hdunn@ghospice.com or call the office at 574-208-9270 . We would love to answer any questions you may have and get you started working in this family like atmosphere we call our office!

About Grace Hospice of South Bend

Mission Statement

Our mission is for each employee to treat every patient as their own treasured loved one, providing care that affords a quality of life that outweighs quantity of days, and supports caregivers as their hearts find healing.

Description

Grace Hospice of Indiana is the first Grace Hospice in the state and has Nurses, CNA's/Hospice Aides, Social Workers, Chaplains and Volunteers that assist the patients and support their families wherever the patient considers their "home" to be.

The hospice philosophy focuses on comfort care not curative care. The goal of hospice care is for the patient to remain as comfortable and pain-free as possible in their own home or the home of a loved one through the end of life. Hospice care can also be provided in a long-term care facility or an assisted living facility.

Hospice is a philosophy of caring for patients whose medical conditions are not responding to treatment or for those patients who choose not to seek aggressive medical care at the end stage of life. It is a program for patients who are considered terminal and are expected to live six months or less if the disease follows its natural course, although many patients outlive this time frame.

We strive to improve the quality of life for all we serve including our patient's families, their neighbors, and the community they live in. We strive to make an impact with everyone we meet and improve the community as a whole.

Come make a difference with the first Grace Hospice of Indiana. This is an opportunity that will change your life.
