The Eleventh Hour Volunteers are amazing people who give their time, love and support to a patient that is actively dying. There are many people who have no one and are scared to die alone. The Eleventh Hour Volunteer eases the patients fear and holds a sacred space for transition.

This volunteer may be asked to give respite to the family. The family needs to take care of themselves during this difficult time and may not want to leave their loved one. The Eleventh Hour Volunteer gives the family permission to leave, take a nap, eat, cry, shower, etc.

If they family choose to stay, the Eleventh Hour Volunteer can encourage the family to tell stories and remember (if appropriate). The Eleventh Hour Volunteer is a support to the family and does his/her best to make sure the family’s needs are met.

The Eleventh Hour Volunteer will have close contact and good communication with the hospice team.

The Eleventh Hour Volunteer is a special soul who honors life during death.

There is additional training for the Eleventh Hour Volunteer.

Must be comfortable around death.

Mission Statement

Our Mission Statement is simple but powerful: Enriching the lives of those we serve with compassion, respect, excellence and integrity.

Description

Life is much more than physical health; it is also the dignity of the human spirit. When physical health begins to fail, the nurturing of the spirit becomes increasingly important. Hospice care is a service that aids the transition between living and dying by providing respect, care, comfort, and support to patients and families.

Brookdale Hospice volunteers provide important support to the care of our patients and families. We have communities throughout the valley. We also serve outside the Brookdale walls in private homes.

Brookdale Hospice serves primarily residents at Brookdale Senior Living communities and the surrounding neighborhoods. We are CHAP accredited and a member of the NHPCO.
