Patient care volunteers provide personal care or emotional support and practical assistance, which enhance the comfort and quality of life for patients and families/caregivers. These services include being available for companionship, listening, simply "being there," and preparing meals. Patient care volunteers may also provide relief for caregivers or assist them with household chores.

Office volunteerslend their services working in hospice's administrative offices. These activities may include assembling information packets, filing, photocopying, and assisting with mailings.

Volunteers are an integral member of the hospice team, providing companionship, support and a friendly smile.

Together, we can make a difference in the care of the hospice patient.

Mission Statement

At Dove Hospice, the care is not about the end of life, it is about inspiring life - making each moment meaningful. While we provide the best possible care for patients, what makes us different is our approach. In fact, we try to set the standard for providing individualized care to our patients and families. We get to know them and learn what’s important to them. We believe the key to excellent care lies in our patients’ life stories. Whether it’s providing a tea party for the patient and spouse, or helping a grandfather facetime with his grandchildren in California, or honoring our World War II veterans, at Dove Hospice, we address the needs of the whole person by providing life-inspiring, individualized care

Description

At Dove Hospice, the end of life journey is recognized as a natural part of life. When cure is no longer the goal, the focus shifts to caring for the person and providing support to the family. Our highly trained, compassionate team concentrates on taking the fear out of the journey. We focus on life and living . . . reminding patients that every moment is a gift. We make the journey as comfortable as possible, and we do everything we can to improve the quality of life while helping patients and their families meet their final life goals.
