Providing support to our patients

Just 1 to 2 hours a week. Here at Bridge Hospice we believe in helping relieve the pressure of patients/family members /caregivers with basic tasks helping them live the best life they can for their whole life.

We have several simple things our volunteers can do to help our families in need.

5 Simple Things that volunteers can do:
1. Sit with patient while caregiver runs to bank, grocery store, or post office
2. Play music for patient from phone. Play music that was popular at
one time for the patient. Perhaps the Big Band sound, Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby
or Nat King Cole would bring a smile to someone who isn't able to play music for
themselves.
3. Read to the patient - Bible scriptures from Psalms are comforting
4. Be a compassionate listener. Visit with patient, caregiver, family
members and listen to their stories. Everyone has a story. It is important to them
and we want them to know their stories matter.
5. Take their pet outside for a walk. Something they may not be able to do or have time
to do.

Just a few simple things that make a world of difference to the family you are visiting.
2-4 hours a month may not be too much to give, but 2-4 hours is a lot to give
to someone in need.
Be a compassionate presence to someone. Start today!

Mission Statement

At Bridge Hospice we are committed to excellence in serving our community. Our goal is to improve the quality of a persons life through pain management and symptom control, and to provide emotional and spiritual support to the patient and their family.

Description

Bridge Hospice is More than medical care for a patient. It is a support for the entire family and or caregiver.

Hospice is a special concept of care designed to provide comfort and support compassionately to patients and their families when a life limiting illness no longer responds to cure-oriented treatment. Hospice care neither prolongs, nor hastens death, but rather focuses on the quality of life’s possibilities. The goal of Hospice is to improve the quality of patient’s remaining days by delivering exceptional care with an emphasis on comfort, dignity, and compassion. Volunteers play a big part of meeting the needs of our families.
