Break the Isolation

Save to Favorites

Brookdale Hospice

  • 1 person is interested

We’ve all experienced isolation at some point in our lives. Being the new kid in school or being home sick for more than just a few days. We know how sad and frustrating this can be. For hospice patients, isolation is the norm. Because of their failing health it is the everyday, all day, situation. Hospice volunteers fight against this. Hospice volunteers are there to share a smile, listen to a story, watch a baseball game on TV or just sit quietly and hold someone’s hand. Join our team and help relieve the isolation for someone facing the end of life. Our patients reside all over Greater Philadelphia.

Mission Statement

Brookdale's mission "Eriching the lives of those we serve with compassion, respect, excellence and integrity," shapes us into the industry leader we are today. This is reinforced by our culture which is grounded in the common themes of Passion, Courage and Partnership. Passion means that serving seniors is our calling. We exceed expectations, have fun and celebrate life every day. Courage means we do what is right even when no one is watching. Partnership means we are all connected. We work and learn together-and we treat one another with respect, These themes are built on a foundation of trust. We build this trust by listening, understanding and partnering to create solutions that change lives.

Description

Hospice is a philosophy of care focused on comfort and quality of life at the end of life. It is designed to treat the whole person emotionally, socially, spiritually and physically by providing comfort and support to patients and their families when a life-limiting illness no longer responds to cure-oriented treatments. As part of the process, family members also receive care and support - all provided by a team of specially trained professionals and volunteers. Bereavement services for family continue for one year after the patient has died.

Brookdale's Hospice offers a full spectrum of care designed to respect the dignity of the individual. Our care is skilled and compassionate in its delivery with the goal of providing comfort and freedom from pain. At the same time, it aims to provide the patient with as much independence and control as possible, for as long as possible.
