Did you know that every hospice that accepts Medicare/Medicaid payments is required by law to use volunteers to support patients and their families? That's one reason why there are so many volunteer opportunities on VolunteerMatch from hospices, including for-profit hospices.
A hospice volunteer fills a unique role in providing comfort and support to patients and families by giving their gifts of time, energy, and compassion. Traditions Hospice is dedicated to providing outstanding care based on a core belief that integrity and respect for each other, our patients, and our community is the cornerstone to excellence.
Anyone can be successful in this role if you meet the eligibility requirements (background check, etc.) and follow these guidelines: respect the people involved, maintain appropriate boundaries, and develop an awareness of the situation. Don't worry, we'll mentor you!
Join our team of volunteers and make a difference tomorrow!
About Traditions Hospice
1120 NASA Parkway, Suite 340A, Houston, TX 77058, US
The mission of Traditions Health is to promote health and independence in the patients we serve, to attract and retain exceptional healthcare professionals and to conduct our business with compassion and integrity.
Hospice care is about living! When a patient is diagnosed with a life limiting illness, the patient and family may become overwhelmed with planning, emotions, questions, and fear. The Traditions Health hospice team provides support and guidance to patients and their families to address each of these needs throughout their end of life journey. We walk with the patient and their loved ones each step of the way, providing the education and care they need to have the best quality of life possible.
Our team is passionate about building relationships with our patients and their loved ones so that we know what matters most to them. Whether the need is physical, spiritual or emotional, our compassionate hospice experts are available to provide the necessary support. Comfort and dignity are the anchors of hospice care. Our clinicians are highly skilled at recognizing and managing symptoms early, in most cases allowing the patient to remain comfortable at home throughout the end of their life.
