Friendship When It Matters

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: ACG Hospice

Providing companionship to those when they need it most. Being a patient or a caregiver can be a lonely experience. Help us make the last days/weeks/months some of the best yet! No special skills needed, just a kind heart and a listening ear. Here are just some of the opportunities we have:

Room Visitor: Goal: Decrease isolation and negative feelings. Activity: Provide one on one stimulation- hold hands, listen to stories, watch tv, put on lotion, etc.

Reader: Goal: Stimulation; distraction from current situation; prevent boredom. Activity: Read books that are of interest to the individual.

Family Support: Goal: Provide comfort when staying extended periods of time. Activity: Retrieve snacks, blankets, etc. for family so they don’t have to leave the bedside

Code Comfort: Goal: No person dies alone. Activity: Sitting with someone who is within 24/48hrs of dying to ensure they are not alone.

Family Respite: Goal: Stress relief. Activity: Sit w/ patient while family leaves to take a break
