Mission Statement

Traditions Health Mission Statement The mission of Traditions Health is to promote health and independence in the patients we serve, to attract and retain exceptional healthcare professionals and to conduct our business with compassion and integrity.

Description

The end of life journey can be difficult for loved ones. At times, they may need to run errands, go to an appointment, or simply meet a friend for coffee. Traditions Health has volunteers available that will sit with patients, read to them or just spend time with them allowing loved ones to the comfort of knowing patients are well cared for while they are away. Our Volunteer Coordinators will match the right volunteer to the patient to meet that patients needs.

Volunteers attend training and go through a screening process to begin volunteering. Once trained, the Volunteer Coordinator will match volunteer where they are best suited. Some work directly with patients and others help with office procedures, events and special events.
