Mission Statement

We are a hospice company looking for compassionate volunteers to spend about 1-2 hours a week with a patient in your area. Our patients simply need someone willing to listen, encourage and spend time with them. Truly, anyone with a heart for hospice patients can volunteer.

Description

We are proud to be a part of the "We Honor Veterans" program; all our veterans deserve to have the best end of life care. In order to continue providing our patients with the compassionate care they deserve we rely on our volunteers, the heart of our company.


Volunteers often spend their time sharing stories with the people we care for while keeping them company, wherever they live. We welcome all. If you play an instrument, like to read stories, are great with arts and crafts, have a trade such as being a beautician/massage therapist or even a musician and have a big heart, this is the opportunity for you!


We are seeking volunteers that can offer 1 to 2 hours of their time, 2 to 4 times a month. Please call at 916-995-7067 or e-mail vanessa.ewing@tctcares.com to discuss volunteer opportunities in your area. Thank you!


Note: Volunteers do NOT do patient care
This is companionship visits only

Mission Statement

We are a collective team of healthcare professionals and volunteers that desire to provide premier end of life care to those who have been diagnosed with a life limiting illness. We provide a wholistic approach in collaboration with the patient’s circle of support.

Description

Hospice - or "comfort" - care is used to describe an approach to healthcare that is specifically designed to support the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of those who have life-limiting illnesses or conditions.

Hospice can be offered in a patient’s home or a care facility. It is designed to provide emotional support to patients and families, and to educate caregivers so that they are able to provide physical care to their loved one. Hospice care provides compassionate care and support for those in the last stage of life so that they may live as fully and comfortably as possible.

Hospice is a physician-directed, nurse-coordinated, interdisciplinary approach to patient care. Hospice team members can include a registered nurse, a medical director, a home health aide, a social worker, a spiritual care coordinator, a volunteer and your attending physician, if he or she remains involved in your car
