Guiding Light Hospice

  • 2 people are interested

If you are bilingual English and any language and would like to join our team, we are looking for great volunteers who are willing to visit with patients that speak languages other than English. Our Alzheimer's and Dementia patients often revert back to their native language and we want them to receive as much socialization/companionship/engagement/stimulation as possible. If you are willing to share your time as a pen pal or a patient care volunteer, please reach out to me for more information.

Description

Guiding Light Hospice is a non-denomination, registered, community based hospice care agency licensed by State of Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services (DADS) and Medicare (CMS) and Accredited by Community Health Accreditation Program (CHAP).

The diagnosis of a life limiting illness causes immeasurable emotional distress for patients and their loved ones.
