" Make the Difference"
It is a fact that about 50% of nursing home residents never receive a visit...from anyone.
How can you help? Crossroads Hospice of Philadelphia is looking for dedicated and compassionate volunteers who would like to offer companionship, socialization and emotional support to people who really need a helping hand.
Our goal is to control the pain and symptoms associated with a terminal illness-physical, emotional, social and spiritual. We offer care where the patient chooses to reside. This can be in the comfort of their own home, nursing home or assisted living facility.
If you are interested in how to become a part of the Crossroads volunteer team, please contact Kimberly Mumper at 215-956-5110 for more information.
About Crossroads Hospice
523 Plymouth Road, Suite 225, Plymouth Meeting, PA 19462, US
Crossroads goal is symptom management and pain control. Hope of remission or cure is never abandoned.The focus is on keeping the patient pain free and giving them a good quality of life for whatever time they may have left with us.
Crossroads cares for patients with life limiting illnesses as well as provides support on many levels to loved ones and caregivers. That care includes the psychological, social and spiritual components of hospice.
Crossroad's staff is available around the clock to consult with the family to make after hour visits as appropriate.
For those patients at home, Crossroads has a respite care program, which places the patient in a temporary facility and allows the family and friends some time away for some much needed rest.
Crossroads also provides a "watch" and "continuous care" program when our patient is most critical.
