Healing Touch

Complementary therapies utilize volunteers with specific trainings, certifications, and skills to provide opportunities for hospice patients to experience calming, comforting, centering treatments that support relaxation and ease symptoms. As a provider, the therapy you provide benefits a patient by relieving pain, reducing anxiety, stress, and nausea, decreasing muscle tension, improving mood, boosting relaxation, and encouraging feelings of well-being and inner peace. Your therapeutic competency and delivery of a complementary therapy will provide a hospice patient with a true gift.

Therapy treatments include aromatherapy, massage and reflexology therapy, music therapy, art therapy, Reiki, mindfulness practice, hair services.

Scheduling Therapy Visits:
Varies depending on the your availability. When matching you to a patient, volunteer services staff will take into consideration your schedule and location.

Mission Statement

The mission of Uni Care is to provide outstanding patient care to our diverse community by utilizing effective processes and achieving great customer satisfaction within a patient-centered model of care. Volunteer Vision Volunteers and interns provide compassion, diverse skill sets, and utilize their strengths to deeply integrate and engage with the Uni Care Hospice mission and staff. Their presence expands and enriches our service to patients and families celebrating life, sharing hope, and offering the highest level of comfort and care.

Description

At Uni Care Hospice, our care focuses on all aspects of an individual’s life and well-being when a life-limiting illness no longer responds to curative treatment. While patients are supported by impactful comfort care, nature is gently allowed to take its course. We are also here to support caregivers and family members.

Depending upon the individual circumstances of our patients and families, Uni Care Hospice may provide any combination of the following care services to provide the best patient-centered care.

You don’t need to go through this alone. We are here for you with Nursing Care; Social Services; Physician Services; Spiritual Support and Counseling; Hospice Aides; Trained Volunteer Support; Physical, Occupational, and Speech Therapies; Respite Care; Inpatient Care; Bereavement Support.

As a Level Three Partner in the We Honor Veterans* program, it is an honor to provide care and services for our Veterans and their families. We care for Veterans by recognizing their service and the impact that their service may have at the end of life.

The Uni Care Hospice team realizes our Veteran patients may experience service-related diseases or illnesses that may affect them from both clinical and benefits perspectives. As a result, care is tailored to meet these needs.

Our Veteran patients are recognized with certificates of service and pinning ceremonies as well as being offered Veteran memorial services.
