About Caring Hospice Services of Central New Jersey

Location:

1090 King Georges Post Road, Suite 703, Edison, NJ 08837, US

Mission Statement

Caring Hospice Services is a unique, holistic and cost-effective service designed to meet the social, emotional, spiritual, and physical needs of patients and families as they face terminal illness. Our mission is to coordinate patient and family services while respecting their choices, values, and beliefs. We are also committed to educating the community regarding hospice philosophy and multi-disciplinary standards of care.

Description

Many times caregivers and patients can experience feelings of isolation; either because they are so consumed with caring for their loved one, or because friends and family may find it difficult to be around someone facing a terminal illness. Trained Hospice volunteers can offer emotional support to both the caregiver and the patient throughout this difficult time.

Our program includes volunteers in both a patient care and in an administrative setting.

No previous experience is necessary. We provide all the training you need and we will work around YOUR schedule.
