About Lighthouse Hospice

Location:

200 Lake Drive East, Suite 205, Cherry Hill, NJ 08002, US

Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide physical, emotional, social, and spiritual support to the patients we serve as well as their families and loved ones. We are focused on helping patients and families to live with dignity and comfort.

Description

Lighthouse Hospice provides care to adults during the final stages of life. Each patient has an experienced team of physicians, registered nurses, home health aides, medical social workers, counselors, and trained volunteers available to help them and their family manage their care. We provide Hospice Care wherever you call "home". We serve patients in homes, nursing facilities, assisted and independent living facilities, and hospitals across southern New Jersey.

We are looking for caring individuals to volunteer their time with our Hospice patients. Patient volunteers provide comfort to patients and their families through companionship, socialization and support. Providing respite care and support for the patient and family is one of the most personal ways a volunteer can become involved with Lighthouse. The volunteer serves as a friend, visiting the patient where he or she lives. We are also seeking Administrative Volunteers to help in our office with mailings, answering the phone and other administrative duties.
