Summit Home Health & Hospice

  • 2 people are interested
Companion Visits

Come and be apart of an incredible team! Summit home health and hospice needs volunteers and we are looking for dedication and compassionate people. You will receive 12 easy hours of self-guided online training, as required by state. Once finished, we will work with your schedule so you can:

  • Allowing time for the caregiver to take care of her/himself
  • Visiting patients and listening to cherished memories
  • Specifically getting trained and volunteering for the 11th hour program, where no one dies alone and/or parting wishes program to help patients fulfill last wishes
  • be a comfort to our dear patients
  • simple yard work and activities
  • Any licensed activities (I.e music therapy, massages therapy, dog therapy, reiki, etc.)

To keep our patients safe, volunteers will be required to wear a mask, bring hand sanitizer to visits with patients and take a very brief COVID-19 questionnaire before visits. We are looking for volunteers to commit at least 1 hour per week with us. Thank you!

Mission Statement

Summit Home Health & Hospice is committed to providing high quality, comprehensive care to meet the physical, emotional, spiritual, and practical needs of people in the last phase of life, those dying from a terminal illness. Summit Hospice reflects a spirit and philosophy of caring that emphasizes comfort and dignity for the dying. Hospice makes it possible for the dying to remain independent for as long as possible.

Description

Summit Hospice care is a patient and family-centered approach that includes an interdisciplinary team of professionals focusing on the dying person’s needs whether physical, emotional, or spiritual.

Hospice care usually takes place at home, retirement center, nursing facility or assisted living. It allows the patient to live with a terminal illness yet control their life with meaning. Hospice concentrates on keeping patients free of pain so they can enjoy the time that remains with them.

Our Hospice team includes volunteers. Volunteers are the heart of Hospice, and each volunteer makes an enormous difference in the lives of our patients and their families. Whether it’s providing companionship to a person in the final months and weeks of life, offering support to family members and caregivers or helping with office administration work, the contributions of volunteers are indispensable to Summit Hospice.
