Dove hospice brings about a warm, sensitive and collaborative approach in an effort to support the unique needs of families and their loved ones experiencing the challenge of end-of-life. We are equally committed to looking for volunteers who can dedicate a small amount of time and assist in areas such as providing companionship, bereavement support, administrative functions, craft projects, pet therapy and taking part in our Special Moments program (which incorporates visual, sound and tactile stimulation). In addition, we are also looking for and very appreciative to military veterans who would be able to dedicate a small amount of time to help fellow vets on hospice.

Mission Statement

At Dove Hospice, the care is not about the end of life, it is about inspiring life - making each moment meaningful. While we provide the best possible care for patients, what makes us different is our approach. In fact, we try to set the standard for providing individualized care to our patients and families. We get to know them and learn what’s important to them. We believe the key to excellent care lies in our patients’ life stories. Whether it’s providing a tea party for the patient and spouse, or helping a grandfather facetime with his grandchildren in California, or honoring our World War II veterans, at Dove Hospice, we address the needs of the whole person by providing life-inspiring, individualized care

Description

At Dove Hospice, the end of life journey is recognized as a natural part of life. When cure is no longer the goal, the focus shifts to caring for the person and providing support to the family. Our highly trained, compassionate team concentrates on taking the fear out of the journey. We focus on life and living . . . reminding patients that every moment is a gift. We make the journey as comfortable as possible, and we do everything we can to improve the quality of life while helping patients and their families meet their final life goals.
