Good Shepherd Hospice Houston

  • 1 person is interested

Our 11th Hour Volunteers, provide a uniquely meaningful service, by "being there" to offer a special sense of peace and support to patients and their families during the final hours of life.

11th Hour volunteers work in tandem with other hospice team members to provide patients and sometimes family members with an extra caring presence during a tender and difficult time. Visits often involve just sitting quietly and holding a hand, softly reading poetry or scripture, if appropriate, or providing a calming presence so people do not feel alone.

Special training is provided to ensure volunteers feel knowledgeable and comfortable in their assignments. Volunteers are contacted as the need arises, often on short notice and is a perfect opportunity for someone looking for an intermittent volunteer commitment.

Mission Statement

Serving people with compassion and dignity.

Description

COMPASSIONATE ABOUT CARE. passionate about life.

At Good Shepherd Hospice, we believe that health care is more than just a diagnosis and a treatment. It's a daily exercise in making this moment...this today...the very best it can be. We're here to help our patients achieve that goal - physically, mentally, spiritually...and for whatever that means individually.

We believe that in the passing of a person’s life, there are also extraordinary opportunities for compassion, reconciliation, spiritual healing, and renewal.

Our Volunteers play a vital role in our Hospice program. From working in the office, to creating special projects at home, to visiting to provide companionship and ease lonliness, Good Shepherd Hospice Volunteers make special moments happen again and again for the patients and families we serve.
