ORGANIZATION: Canyon Home Care & Hospice

Hospice volunteers provide vital companionship to a patient, enriching their quality of life by simply being present. They sit with patients and read to them, listen to their stories, play music or sing, knit, play cards - as well as provide respite for their loved ones.

Currently, volunteers may visit patients living at home and in some nursing facilities. Each nursing facility determines its own visitation policy, and those have been changing frequently over the last few months. We adhere to strict PPE and cleanliness standards in the wake of COVID-19 to ensure the safety of our patients, employees, and volunteers.

Canyon Home Care & Hospice is seeking volunteers to sit with patients, and sometimes family members, to create rapport and support them during this difficult time. Some specific areas we are looking for are One on One Companionship, Music Therapy, Pet Therapy and Military experience ~ though all are welcome to apply!

Thank you for your interest, and we look forward to meeting you!

Mission Statement

Hospice Care Providing Comfort Your Way, in Your Home. Hospice Care provides comfort, dignity, quality of life and time to those facing a life-limiting illness, such as heart disease, Chronic Kidney Disease, COPD, HIV/AIDS, cancer, dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease. In addition to providing compassionate medical care and pain management, hospice care offers emotional and spiritual support to patients and their loved ones. Hospice care is provided wherever a patient resides, and it is delivered by the hospice care team- specially trained physicians, nurses, certified nursing assistants, social workers, chaplains and volunteers, who work together to meet the unique needs of each patient and family.

Description

The word "Hospice" means, "a place of shelter for travelers on a difficult journey."

Hospice care is a team-oriented approach to expert medical care and pain management of the patient, and emotional and spiritual support for the patient's family and friends. The patient's wishes are always considered and respected. Hospice philosophy is based on the belief that patients have the right to die with dignity and without pain, while enjoying the highest quality of life possible. The focus is not on curative measures, but rather relief of symptoms. the patient and family are encouraged to participate in planning and performing the care, to the extent that they wish to do so. The Hospice team is there to care, instruct, educate and support the family.
