Choice Hospice Care

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 9 people are interested

We would love to hear from individuals with sewing skills who might like to utilize their talents to help others.

We offer our patient's family members the opportunity to have a memory bear made out of fabric that has a special meaning or sentimental value. Memory Bears are something for the family to hold and cuddle when they are grief stricken or they can bring a smile to their face during times of sadness.

Each Memory Bear is unique, and can be embellished with buttons and emblems to capture the character of their loved one.

Volunteering to create the Memory Bears is such a sweet way to get involved with hospice volunteering and can be done from the comfort of your own home or we will provide a space for you.

We have patterns available and training will be given if necessary.

Mission Statement

Choice Hospice Care is certificated by Medicare and accredited by The Joint Commission to provide end-of-life care to individuals with a life limiting disease who are in the last six months of their life. Comfort care and support is delivered by our compassionate and caring health care professionals and volunteers in the patient's home or care facility. Our mission is to provide the best care, tailored for the patient's and family's individual situation with dignity, compassion, and tenderness. This mission involves holistic care of needs: physical, pain management, emotional, and spiritual.

Description

Volunteers are an integral part of the hospice team, filling roles that range from visiting with patients to provide compassionate care and support, to assisting with clerical work in the office. We are currently developing a range of services that compliment the hospice program such as Pet Therapy, an Essential Oils Program and the We Honor Vets Program. We are also in the process of growing our core group of patient volunteers to ensure that we can meet the needs of our patients and their families.
