Hospice is a framework of care that provides comfort and support for patients and their families as they near the end of life's journey. During the course of certain illnesses, when the patient, doctor and family decide that aggressive curative treatment is no longer appropriate, hospice strives to optimize the quality of life and bring comfort and support.

One of the best ways Torrance Memorial Hospice provides comfort and support to our families is through our volunteer program. We are looking for members of our community to help with patient visits, bereavement support and office work. Our volunteers sit with patients and provide companionship by reading to them, playing music, puzzling, playing games, going for a walk or helping with errands etc. We also have an End-of-Life Doula program where our volunteers help our team support families while their loved one is transitioning. We strive to provide volunteers when there is no family available so none of our patients die alone. We have a bereavement program that supports our families by providing weekly support groups and bereavement phone calls for 13 months after their loved one dies. Volunteers can also support our program by helping with mailings, data entry and other office duties. Volunteers are essential to hospice and the heart of our program.

Description

Founded in 1983, Torrance Memorial's Hospice program is licensed by the State of California, Medicare and Medi-Cal certified, and accredited by the Joint Commission. We have received top honors in nursing excellence, receiving the distinction of Magnet Status. During the summer of 2021, Torrance Memorial once again received The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval for Hospital/Home Care/Hospice Accreditation by demonstrating continuous compliance with its performance standards. The Gold Seal is a symbol of quality that reflects a health care organization’s commitment to providing safe and quality patient care.
