We are seeking compassionate individuals to provide support to our patients in the South Hills area. Providing companionship is one of the most valuable services you can provide to our patients. To be a listening ear, friendly face or just to show they are not alone is so uplifting for these patients. Dedicating a few hours a month convenient to your schedule to your assigned patient can really make a difference in someone's life. If you're looking to help others this is an opportunity for you!

Mission Statement

Bridges Hospice strives to empower their patients, families and caregivers with the tools, education and support needed to make informed decisions during the last phases of life. The physical, emotional and spiritual needs of our patients are met through an individualized, ethical plan of care focused on the patient and their family.

Description

Bridges Hospice was founded by two local nurses with over twenty years of hospice experience. They wanted to return to the basic principles of hospice care and separate themselves from the corporate environment style of hospice. Hospice is anything but corporate, it’s very personal and a very significant time in a patient’s life, as well as the lives of their loved ones.

We take pride in our community, in being local, and having non-corporate based services. We serve Pittsburgh and the surrounding region. We don’t have to follow corporate protocols from an office located in another city - we’re able to modify our care to each individual patient, because every single individual IS different, and deserves a specially tailored care plan suited to their needs. Being local and independent means Bridges can respond more efficiently to the needs and concerns of those that we serve.

At Bridges, we believe hospice should focus on an environment where compassionate care and the comfort of the patient comes before all else. We’re available 24/7 to provide care and support.
