Become A Volunteer

In hospice, we learn that every moment of life is a treasure. Our volunteers give the priceless gift of their time. We wouldn't be who we are without them and the support they provide to our patients, families, and our staff.

A few areas where volunteers are utilized at EZ Comfort Hospice Care include providing emotional, spiritual and physical support to patients and families. This can include helping in the office, with the patient/family, or at special events. Some examples of volunteer service include:

  • Visit with patients
  • Help patients write their life story
  • Shop for personal items
  • Household tasks
  • Caregiver respite
  • Nursing Home or Care Center visits
  • Specialized services (i.e. beautician, barber)
  • Pick-up and deliver medications
  • Special events

EZ Comfort Hospice Care will provide you with training so you will feel comfortable being an EZ Comfort Hospice Care volunteer. As an EZ Comfort Hospice Care volunteer, you will have the information and support to help patients and families.off

Mission Statement

EZ Comfort Hospice Care is focused on the needs of our patients and their families. Every employee is a valued member of our team, and our focus is on the needs and desires of our patients and their families. We bring compassion, joy, love and laughter to a stressful time. We are never rushed to complete a visit. If more time is needed then we will take it. We take the time to listen to stories, fears, jokes or whatever the moment brings. We help celebrate special moments and being present in the moment - because that is what life is made of.

Description

While advances in modern medicine are impressive, there are situations when patients either cannot or will not pursue efforts to cure a life-limiting illness, disease or condition.

Hospice is a specialized form of medical care that seeks to provide comfort and maintain a patient's quality of life (to the greatest extent possible) for those facing a life-limiting illness, disease or terminal condition.

Hospice care focuses on the overall well-being of the patient by not only addressing his or her physical condition but also any emotional, social or spiritual needs as death approaches.

Hospice care can provide support, resources, and information to a patient's family and loved ones during this difficult time -- particularly to a family member providing caregiving to the patient -- as well as assistance after a hospice patient passes.

It's important to understand that while hospice care does not seek to cure a patient's life-limiting disease, condition, or illness, hospice also does not hasten death or "help someone to die." The mission of hospice care is to affirm life and considers death part of a natural process in order to help patients spend the rest of their lives as fully and comfortably as possible.
