Recording a Legacy - East Polk County

Save to Favorites

Good Shepherd Hospice

  • 2 people are interested

As people face their final days, it's important to record their stories and experiences to be shared with generations to follow. Legacy volunteers will spend time with patients in their residence - private home, nursing home, or assisted living facility - and record them via journal or video.

Volunteers can work alone or in teams interviewing patients and families, collecting images of a life well lived for a scrapbook or video presentation. Training, equipment, and materials will be provided.

Mission Statement

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.

Description

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.
