At Legacy Hospice, we are firm believers that our patients and their families come first to provide excellent care during this transitional period of time in life’s journey.


We are currently seeking for volunteers with certified Therapy Dogs to visit with our patients throughout the Milwaukee, Waukesha, Jefferson, Dodge, Walworth, Racine, Kenosha county and surrounding areas. We are able to provide a flexible schedule dependent on the handler's schedule and proximity of available locations.

These visits will be one on one with patients who will greatly benefit from a visit with a therapy dog. These sessions are demonstrated to have positive effects such as reduced anxiety and stress, increased feelings of relaxation, and an overall improved outlook through companionship.

Thank you for your consideration in the volunteer program with Legacy Hospice. We truly understand that time is valuable, and would like to further express how grateful we are for you to consider in making a difference in the lives of others through the volunteer role.

If you would like to volunteer to spend time with these very special individuals, please apply today!

Thank you,

Katie Kooi

About Legacy Hospice

Location:

850 Elm Grove Rd, Suite 21, Elm Grove, WI 53122, US

Mission Statement

We support our patients through their journey. We hold their hand and provide exceptional care along the way. We give each patient the love and compassion we would give our own family member and loved one.

Description

The company was started after we put our heads together and realized we had to find a better way to provide Hospice care. One of our biggest frustrations is the "corporate environment", in which hospice companies take care of patients. Everyone started to become a "cookie cutter" type of patient, whose care did not get the individual treatment and unique management that we believed was required to achieve the best care possible. At Legacy Hospice we recognize the unique legacy that each individual person has and how it is so intertwined with who that person is and who their families are. We never take this information for granted and we labor to position ourselves as an integral part of the patient’s family that gives support and insight to the true essence of who the patient is and how he or she wants to journey towards the end of life. We at Legacy Hospice ask ourselves daily, just how we would take care of our own family, and make sure we translate this idealism to our entire staff and support a culture of true care and compassion that would stand against the rigors of healthcare services today.
