We are committed to patient safety and assuring that no patient dies alone. A Vigil Care Volunteer supports the plan of care for the hospice patient, to ensure patient safety and to provide a presence and support to the patient when death is imminent. Vigil Care is implemented to provide support to the caregiver/family members who feel overwhelmed or scared when death of their loved one is imminent.

Vigil Care Volunteers may come in hours or days before death. If the vigil is long, the vigil staff and volunteers may take shifts if the patient or family wants someone there continuously. Vigil Care Volunteers are asked to document using volunteer documentation tools. If you think you have what it takes to be a death vigil volunteer, contact us today!

Vigil Care may include:

  • Providing a calm physical presence
  • Sitting together
  • Talking and listening
  • Shared silence
  • Healing touch
  • Reading of scripture or inspirational text
  • Requested rituals
  • Inspirational music
  • Physical care by licensed skilled nurses or certified nursing assistants

About Kansas Palliative and Hospice Care

Location:

6828 Silverheel St., Shawnee, KS 66226, US

Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide the highest level of comfort and care, honoring and respecting the dignity of each individual, and enhancing the quality of living at the end of life, under the guidance of Christian principles.

Description

  • We are Midwest owned and operated. We make decisions locally. Our people live in the community we support. Our leaders and owners are actively involved in the business and are all Midwest residents.
  • Kansas Palliative & Hospice Care is one of the oldest hospice providers in the State of Kansas with its approval to provide Medicare hospice services originating in 1991. We serve the entire Northeast Kansas Area, as far south as Franklin county to our northern border in Doniphan county, as west as Riley county.
  • We are committed to exceeding industry standards. We recognize that each patient’s life experiences and spiritual beliefs have created a unique individual who deserves the finest care and emotional support, while honoring and respecting their needs and wishes. All while keeping care costs lower by striving to care for our patients and their caregivers at home.
  • Of all the benefits available to our patients we believe the hospice benefit is the most misunderstood of them all. The benefits are incredible, the cost is negligible and yet the participation rate is low. We believe this is because of a fundamental misunderstanding of the program.
