About Silverado Hospice of Dallas/Fort Worth

Location:

4500 Beltway Drive, Addison, TX 75001, US

Mission Statement

Silverado Hospice's mission is to affirm the cycle of life by enhancing the quality of living for those at the end of life. The Silverado standard is to care compassionately for patients and their families and to empower those we serve to have quality of life options that afford them comfort and dignity.

Description

Silverado Hospice of Dallas/Fort Worth has a meaningful need for volunteers throughout the metroplex. Silverado patients and families experience L.I.F.E. (Love, Innovation, Family and Engagement) through our special hospice programs.

Hospice volunteers are ordinary people of all ages with extraordinary love and a common bond, concern for others. Our volunteers are an integral part of our Circle of Care team. Because we believe hospice is a philosophy and not a place, we meet the patients’ and families’ needs wherever they call home, including senior living communities, nursing facilities, hospitals, as well as in their homes. Our volunteers can serve in many different ways including:

  • Providing companionship and socialization to patient and family
  • Providing needed non-medical services such as letter writing, respite care and assisting with family needs
  • Providing office support for hospice programming by answering phones, emailing/mailing information, and other clerical work
  • Sitting vigil with patient and/or family during the passing of a patient
  • Providing support through bereavement
  • Providing support through our special programming services: Petals for Patients, Memory Catchers, Essential Oils, We Honor Veterans, Birthday Celebrations, Loving Lawns, Cards from Kids, and Comfort Food

You will undoubtedly find your volunteer experience with Silverado Hospice to be rewarding, educational, and life changing as you though the hearts and spirits of those you serve.
