There is dignity in dying. Hospice understands that the last moments can be gentle and serene, not painful or haunting. We are looking to record those moments for families. This type of photography is more than memories - it can help with grief and acceptance. The family can step back as you take the pictures and see their loved one as more than a diagnosis. These photos can be a way to heal. Giving the bereaved family a photo that captures the love they shared is priceless.

About MorseLife Hospice and Palliative Care

Location:

4847 David S. Mack Drive, West Palm Beach, FL 33417, US

Mission Statement

Palm Beach Hospice and Palliative Care by MorseLife provides physical, emotional, social and spiritual support to terminally ill patients, as well as their families and loved ones, while assisting patients and families to live with dignity and comfort as they cope with end of life issues.

Description

We believe that Hospice affirms life. We recognize dying as a process and so our care provides comfort rather than cure. Hospice neither hastens nor postpones death. We provide physical, emotional, and spiritual care to terminally ill persons and their families. Hospice helps the terminally ill person maintain quality of life while helping family members through an extremely stressful time in their lives. Hospice is primarily a home care program, but services may also be provided in a hospital or nursing home. A hospice team helps the patient and family make informed decisions about caregiving, teaches the necessary skills for "hands-on" care and helps with the approaching and actual death. Hospice also offers help through the bereavement period.
Our volunteers provide service in multiple areas:

  • Companionship
  • Bereavement Support
  • Emotional Support
  • Vigil Support
  • Practical support such as running errands and light housekeeping
  • Administrative Support

We also utilize specialty therapies and skills such as

  • Pet Therapy
  • Music and Art Inclusion Therapy
  • Massage Therapy
  • Cosmetology
  • Law

Assignments are flexible with your schedule. The Hospice staff is here to support you every step of the way.
