Patient Visitor Volunteer - Lebanon

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Heartland Hospice (formerly ProMedica Hospice)

Volunteers provide companionship and emotional support to terminally ill patients and their families. Volunteers talk with patients, hold their hand, play a game, read a book, play music, or just provide a friendly presence. They can also give the family a needed break to run errands or take a walk. Patients are located in both nursing facilities and private homes.

As little as two hours a month can make a big difference. Assignments, hours, and locations are flexible and can work around your schedule.

About Heartland Hospice (formerly ProMedica Hospice)

Location:

2201 Ridgewood Road, Suite 180, Wyomissing, PA 19610, US

Mission Statement

We believe that our mission is to enrich lives. That begins with every life we encounter: our employees, our patients, and those who love and care for them, the communities in which we operate, our stakeholders and those who are yet to become our customers.

Description

Hospice emphasizes quality of life and also stresses human values that go beyond the physical needs of the patient. The hospice focus is no longer on cure but rather on comfort.

Admission and treatment is delivered without discrimination of race, color, religion, age, sex, marital status, contagious diseases or sexual orientation.

Heartland Hospice (formerly ProMedica) can help when the prognosis is down to months and is certified by a physician. Since hospice care is a covered benefit under Medicare and Medicaid and many private insurance plans, the staff will help the patient to determine what benefits they are qualified to receive.

Service and support to patient and family is round the clock (24 hours a day and 7 days a week). It is flexible regarding time, place, and any other matters concerning family and patient. Care is often in the patient's home and can be extended to skilled nursing centers, assisted living facilities and hospitals.

The hospice team consists of highly trained and caring health professionals and trained volunteers.
