Hello! My name is Michael, I'm the Hospice Volunteer Coordinator at Compassionate Care Hospice of Taunton, Ma. We offer end-of-life care to patients and their families in Southeastern MA.

We are looking for volunteers to provide companionship visits with patients at the end of life. We have many volunteer needs in Bristol and Plymouth counties. Give the gift of time and provide some companionship for patients. This is a wonderful opportunity for those pursuing careers in human service and for those who would like to give back to the community in a meaningful way. Volunteer hours are flexible, please note we are looking for volunteers who can provide one hour each week (please inform Hospice Volunteer Coordinator if you have unique circumstances). Know someone who didn't see this opportunity and would be a great hospice volunteer? Please share. :) Free training** is provided by Compassionate Care Hospice. Please email Michael at Michael.Freilich@Amedisys.com. We are looking forward to meeting you!

**Note: During this time, volunteer training is being offered online. Since volunteers aren't permitted to make in-person visits with patients, we are looking for those interested in providing companionship phone calls and write greeting cards in the comfort and safety of your home. The hope is when volunteers are permitted to re-enter facilities, you will volunteer in person. Thank you for your time! <3

Mission Statement

Compassionate Care Hospice has defined as its mission to affirm life during its final stages by providing holistic compassionate care to patients and their families; by providing access to hospice care for undeserved or difficult to serve populations; by wise and efficient use of available resources, and by educating the community in order to provide them with knowledge regarding end-of-life and hospice care around quality of life.

Description

Hospice Philosophy
Hospice provides palliative support and care for persons in the last phases of incurable disease so that they may live as fully and as comfortable as possible. Hospice recognizes dying as part of the normal process of living and focuses on maintaining the quality of remaining life. Hospice affirms life and neither hastens nor postpones death. Hospice exists in the hope and belief that through appropriate care, and the promotion of a caring community sensitive to their needs, patients and their families may be free to attain a degree of mental, social, physical, and spiritual preparation for death that is satisfactory to them.
