We are a hospice company devoted to making the final days peaceful and memorable for dying patients and their families. It isn't easy losing a loved one, but sometimes their isn't anything we can do about that. Being a volunteer with us will help give the patient and family something positive to remember from this journey. I am putting together different projects that will provide the families with a sentimental keepsake to remind them of their loved one.

What we need from you? It is hard for some patients to leave their home and we want to make things as easy as possible. I would love to have someone visit the patients in their home to take photos of them and their loved one. Something as simple as a photo of relatives holding their loved one's hand can be something that brings a patient and their family a piece of joy. It is also something the family can have when their loved one is no longer with them.

About Compassionate Care Hospice, an Amedisys Company

Location:

1201 New Rd, Suite 139, Linwood, NJ 08221, US

Mission Statement

Our focus is caring, not curing. Hospice is a "special way of caring" for the terminally ill population, through a philosophy addressing the unique needs of the dying patient. The goal is to affirm life during its final stages by providing holistic compassionate care to patients and their families. We provide access to hospice care for underserved or difficult to serve populations: by wise and efficient use of available resources, and by educating the community.

Description

Peace and comfort are things we all need. Compassionate Care Hospice allows you to provide for someone during their final days of life. We offer in-home visits for companionship and we have a range of things that can be done such as singing, reading, and drawing for or with a patient. You can also help from the comfort of your home by making weekly comfort calls, hand-written note cards and quilts made from the patient's clothing. Don't want to directly interact with a patient? You can also help by assisting the office with clerical needs. We cover the counties of Atlantic, Cape May, and Cumberland.
