Check In Callers - West Polk County
4 people are interested
On Tuesday & Thursday mornings we call our patients who reside in their homes to see how they are doing and if they are low on and medicines or supplies.
It also is a nice social visit for the patient who is trying to maintain independence and reside in their home and for those who might be caring for them. Many patients and family members look forward to these weekly telephone calls.
All calls are made from our Lakeland offices. Volunteers are given a basic script to follow but are encouraged to make the conversation more personal.
For those who would like to be of assistance to patients and families receiving hospice service, this is a rewarding way of helping them without having to be in the home or at bedside.
About Good Shepherd Hospice
3450 Lakeland Hills Bvld, Lakeland, FL 33805, US
Good Shepherd Hospice strives to provide quality palliative care and relieve the suffering of those in our communities affected by life-limiting illnesses and end-of-life issues, maintaining the highest ethical standards, so all may live as fully and comfortably as possible.
Hospice care allows those no longer seeking curative treatment to die in comfort and peace, and in control of their surroundings, with supportive care extending to the entire family network. Good Shepherd Hospice provides care to almost half of all those who die in our communities, serving Polk, Highlands and Hardee counties. Care is based on medical need without regard to race, age, ability to pay, creed, gender, lifestyle, or illness. As a non-profit organization, we are able to provide charitable care through generous donations and the special care that our volunteers provide.
We'll work with your schedule.
