Recently, the hospice model has been praised as the nation's first coordinated care service. Part of the holistic approach to quality end of life care is the Bereavement Program - to help support family and friends after losing a loved one.

Join our Bereavement Team! Volunteers are integral to providing the best support to all of our bereaved families. Volunteers make periodic phone calls to the caregiver of the patient who was on our services.

As a caring and compassionate voice on the other end of the phone, the bereaved person really appreciates the continued support and recognition - sometimes you just need someone to talk to and/or a chance to tell a story about the person they lost.

Cell phone, training and orientation is provided.

Mission Statement

"To provide quality end of life carethrough listening and education and responding to the needs of those we serve, our community and team."

Description

Gateway Hospice volunteers are the heart of our organization. Volunteers do a variety of different things that help promote our mission of providing quality end of life care. From providing a listening ear as a companion volunteer, to providing respite for the caregiver to go grocery shopping or to their own medical appointment, to managing special projects in our North Hills office as "behind the scenes" support. Volunteers also can get involved with our bereavement program, making phone calls to bereaved family and friends. Music and art are a powerful way volunteers can connect with our patients, especially those with dementia. Pets are welcomed to pay friendly visits to our patients residing in nursing homes. The possibilities go on and on.

If you are interested in learning more, please call us at 412-536-2020, or email Suzanne Ferguson at sferguson@gatewayhospice.com.
