Our hospice is looking for friendly volunteers to provide companionship & socialization to our patients at home in Chatham & surrounding counties. Some caregivers of patients could also use a break to run errands for an hour or 2 - we also need volunteers for this. Volunteers must wear PPE during visits and will be provided basic PPE if they don't have their own. Volunteers also must socially distance during visits. Covid-19 has left many of our patients in need of friendly interactions - please come make a positive difference in the lives of those we serve!

Mission Statement

To help our patients reach their highest potential for health and healing with intensive medical and rehabilitative care through a compassionate patient experience.

Description

Hospice care often misunderstood. Choosing it does not mean you are giving up on life. Instead, it means you are focusing on comfort instead of a cure so that a better quality of life can be maintained for as long as possible.

At the center of hospice is the belief that each of us has the right to die pain free, with dignity, and that our families will receive the necessary support to allow us to do so. Hospice neither hastens nor postpones death. It provides personalized services and a caring community so necessary preparation for death can be attained in a way that is satisfactory for you and your loved ones.

Hospice care can take place in a variety of settings, wherever your loved one calls home. Compassionate care provides the physical, emotional and spiritual resources needed to make the most of every moment.

Hospice care may be right for your loved one when living with an end-stage illness, which has a six-month life expectancy, should the disease run its normal course. There are no limits on the amount of time you can receive hospice, but your physician must order the service once every six months to determine if our care is still appropriate.
