Bon Secours Health System Logo
Our Logo Developed from the fleur-de-lis (the iris), our logo recalls the beginnings of the Sister's ministry in France. It also portrays the cross reaching out to others. It reminds us that we are part of a rich tradition of ministry to the sick. It is worn with pride by the people of Bon Secours and serves to identify the Sisters and their co-workers, our buildings and our work.

Bon Secours Hospice has been providing "good care" to the Hampton Roads area for over 20 years. We would not be able to exist if it were not for the help of the Hospice Volunteers. Yes, Hospice is focused on comfort care and family service support when patients have been diagnosed with a terminal illness. However not every person is meant to deal directly with patients. Special Project Volunteers are usually those people who enjoy working out doors, and working up a sweat. The goal is to have a house or yard project every weekend. This time of year is especially busy. Please read through some of the duties you may encounter as a Special Project Volunteer. If you think you might be a match, we'd be glad to have you on the team.

  • Complete minor home repairs to include but not limited to: hinge repairs, painting, sanding,
  • Participating in Yard work projects to include but not limited: Raking, mowing, weed whacking, shrub trimming, planting, tilling, hoeing, mulching, digging
  • Hanging holiday or seasonal decorations on the exterior of patient's homes
  • Assisting with cleaning or clearing of rooms for hospital beds
  • Maintain confidentiality of patient, family and hospice team and comply with all OSHA/HIPPA regulations
  • Sign in volunteer log during all volunteer activities

Keep in mind that although the office address is in Suffolk, we cater to the needs of patients all the way from Virginia Beach to Smithfield. Bon Secours Hospice Volunteers go where they are needed!

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.
