We are currently looking volunteers with certified Therapy Dogs to visit with patients throughout the Madison area. We are able to provide a flexible schedule dependent on the handler's schedule.

These visits will be one on one with patients who will greatly benefit from a visit with a therapy dog.

Before visiting with patients all handlers will need to complete our volunteer onboarding process. A majority of this process can be completed from home at your own pace.

For more information, apply today!

About Brighton Hospice

Mission Statement

Our mission at Brighton Hospice is to provide the best physical, emotional and spiritual care for our patients and their families. We achieve our mission by hiring the most compassionate and skilled people in the industry who deliver clinical expertise and exceed our patient’s expectations. We cultivate an environment where our team members are valued, respected and provided personal and professional growth opportunities. Our leaders focus on supporting the clinical team so they can concentrate on patient care. We are always guided by our commitment to excellence.

Description

At Brighton Hospice, we believe that the end of life should be just as beautiful as the beginning. Hospice care provides patients with the quality of life they deserve and freedom from pain as they leave this life. The goal of hospice care is to improve the quality of life during a patient’s last months by offering comfort, dignity, and care wherever the patient resides. Medicare has set minimum standards of care for hospice. Brighton’s mission is to raise the hospice industry standard by providing the maximum amount of physical, emotional, and spiritual care for our patients and their families. We keep our caseloads small and up the amount of visits per week, with nurses visiting 2x/week and CNAs visiting 5x/week.
