At Star City Hospice, we take our mission of providing the very best care to our patients and families with increased bedside presence, being with the patient and family when they need us, and anticipating changes in care and education along the way very seriously. We are always exploring creative opportunities that will reduce the stress that end of life care can sometimes bring.
Led by our Star City Hospice Volunteer Department, our Tuck-In Program is designed to ensure that each of our patients, families, and caregivers receive a friendly call once a week. A specially trained volunteer will call on Thursday, between the hours of 9:00am and 11:00am to check on supplies, medications, and equipment. Our Tuck-In Program will help with anticipating patient, family, and caregiver needs and filing an requests will relieve anxiety that you might have regarding medications, supplies, or equipment required over a weekend.
If a patient/family need is identified that was not previously addressed during the patients nursing visit, our volunteer will relay the information immediately to the nurse or Manager for assistance. This is a great opportunity for Volunteers that desire indirect contact with patients. A general hospice orientation will be provided prior to all our volunteers prior to contact with our patients.
For additional information about our Tuck-In Program contact us at 469-529-2954 and ask to speak with the Volunteer Coordinator.
About Star City Hospice
1701 N. Collins Blvd, Suite 110, Richardson, TX 75080, US
Our mission at Star City hospice is to bring specialized care to patients and families facing a life limiting illness by meeting, listening, and assessing where each patient and family are in their journey. We provide unsurpassable hospice services while supporting everyone with an individualized plan of care, kindness, and unrelenting compassion.
Star City was founded with the idea of providing the very best care to our patients and families with increased bedside presence. This philosophy allows the interdisciplinary team to be present with patients and families when they need us the most and to be able to anticipate their changes in care while providing education along the way. Our personal best is to make sure that no one makes this journey alone. Our interdisciplinary team is made up of the hospice physician, nursing staff, aides, social worker, spiritual support, therapists, and most important our community of volunteers.
We invite you to consider becoming a volunteer. Our volunteers work side by side with hospice professionals in providing comfort and care when they are needed most in both direct and indirect contact. Our Volunteers vary in age, life experiences, and professional backgrounds and frequently feel a deep sense of satisfaction at being able to help someone at the end of their life. We want our volunteers to feel as though they've made a real, significant contribution to their community. Hospice volunteers also get to make deep connections with patients and their families.
This is a Virtual Opportunity with no fixed address.
