ORGANIZATION: Cadence Hospice, a Traditions Health Company

Are you and your therapy animal certified pet therapists/animal-assisted therapists? Cadence Hospice, a Traditions Health company, is looking for certified pet therapists who are willing to volunteer their time with hospice patients. Traditions Health, in Orange, CA., provides hospice services to patients across Orange County, parts of San Bernardino County, and parts of the Inland Empire, wherever the patient calls home. Patients may reside in their own home or care facility. A visit from a therapy dog can be so beneficial for patients in their end-of-life journey. The extra attention and unconditional love would go a long way in providing joy and comfort.

Hours are very flexible- weekdays, evenings, or weekends available. Any time that you have available can benefit the lives of those who need it most during this difficult time in their lives. Please respond to our ad for more information on how to get started. We need you!

Mission Statement

At Cadence Hospice, a Traditions Health company, we understand that this is a difficult time for family and friends. Our caring staff and volunteers endeavor to provide an atmosphere of love, caring, peace, and dignity to each individual we serve. We also want the patients and their families to have the opportunity to live the remainder of your life with respect, understanding and joy. Our volunteers have an opportunity to provide comfort care for the patient and/or families whether it be for 30 minutes to an hour during the patient visits. Our team strives to function with compassion and care in order to give the families and patients full support.

Description

As a volunteer with Traditions Health you can make a positive impact in the lives of our patients, caregivers, and their families.

As a volunteer you can donate your time, at a patient’s place of residence, in a variety of ways including companionship and caregiver relief.

Your service is invaluable to patients, their caregivers and families, and for our Cadence Hospice staff. Free training is provided to get you prepared to go out into the field, and staff is available to support you on your journey volunteering. Don’t pass up this amazing opportunity!
