Special Project Volunteers
We appreciate our Special Project Volunteers for sharing their time and their skills with the Hospice families.Thank you!

Do you have a few hours a month that you would like to volunteer, but you don't have the time to go through training? Well, here is a perfect opportunity for you.

Bon Secours Hospice has been providing "good care" to patients and families dealing with terminal illness for over 20 years. We have found that providing help with yard projects and minor house repairs can give family members more time to spend with their loved ones. That's where our Special Project Volunteers come in. Especially during the Spring and Summer seasons, we provide services such as cleaning gutters, raking and bagging leaves, cutting grass, trimming hedges, and weeding and mulching. There are opportunities three weekends out of the month which means this works for even the most hectic of schedules.

This opportunity is great for people who want to give back to their community and enjoy being outdoors. If you think you would be interested, we would love to have you on the team!

About Bon Secours Hospice (Hampton Roads)

Location:

3636 High Street, Portsmouth, VA 23707, US

Mission Statement

Bon Secours Hampton Roads

Rooted in our Catholic Health Ministry, we will be known as the leading health care system in providing compassionate and innovative care for the whole person. Through our employees and in collaboration with our physicians and other partners, we will seek to improve the health of our community

Description

Bon Secours Hospice provides an individualized program of physical, emotional, spiritual, and practical care for people in the last phases of a life-limiting illness, with an emphasis on control of pain and other symptoms. The program is reflective of a spirit and idea of caring that emphasizes comfort and dignity for the dying, making it possible for them to remain independent for as long as possible, in familiar surroundings. Hospice care is centered on both the patient and family/caregiver. Hospice personnel respect and respond to the unique differences in family/caregiver, lifestyle, values, and wishes.

Utilizing an interdisciplinary group approach of physicians, nurses, social workers, therapists, homemakers, hospice aides, volunteers, spiritual counselors, bereavement counselors, and others, Bon Secours Hospice provides palliative care in the home, short-term inpatient services, mobilization and coordination of ancillary services, and bereavement support. Services will be equitably distributed to a medically and financially diversified group of patients in a cost-effective manner which ensures adherence to the goals of Bon Secours Hospice and the maintenance of the financial solvency of the organization.

Hospice affirms life.

Hospice exists to provide support and care for persons in the last phases of a life-limiting illness so that they may live as fully and comfortably as possible.

Hospice exists in the belief that through appropriate care and the promotion of a caring community, patients and family/caregivers will be free to attain a degree of mental preparation for death that is satisfying to them.
