Vigil Volunteers are needed in the Lehigh Valley and Carbon County area to serve terminally ill patients and families. We will provide the education and training to you.
Vigil Volunteers sit with patients and families when the patient is actively dying. They may provide education, information, guidance, and companionship. Vigil Volunteers are there if a patient has no family, if the family is unable to sit at bedside, or if the patient/family/facility doesn't want the patient to die alone.
Vigil Volunteers are specially trained to provide support to families and patients during the last hours, providing a calm, comforting presence during the patient's last journey.
Family Pillars Hospice values life as our most precious possession, and recognizes that its loss can be our most difficult yet inescapable experience. Family Pillars believes that having the care and support to face the challenges and uncertainty can make the journey easier. Our dedicated team will create an atmosphere of comfort, safety, and dignity that leads to peace of mind for everyone.
We provide quality palliative and end-of-life care to patients with a terminal condition. We are involved in the We Honor Veterans program, which honors Veterans and addresses their unique needs at the end of life. Our program includes: medical doctors, nurse practitioners, nurses-RNs and LPNs, nurse aides, social work services, spiritual care, music therapy, massage therapy, bereavement services, and a volunteer program.
