Choice Hospice Care would like to hear from anyone who is interested in visiting with individuals who are receiving hospice care. It would be beneficial is you have an interest in dementia and have a level of comfort supporting and communicating with individuals who have limited communication and understanding.
We are seeking a male or female volunteer to visit once a week to provide companionship.
Our volunteers receive an orientation and training and become part of the hospice multidisciplinary team. Continued support and supervision is provided.
About Choice Hospice Care
9003 Reseda Blvd, Northridge, CA 91324, US
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.
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.
We'll work with your schedule.
