Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Serenity Point Hospice Care is looking for caring and compassionate volunteers to visit with our patients. Each of our patients and their families are dealing with a terminal diagnosis, and your visits will mean the world to them. Someone to follow up with patients and their families, read or watch TV to/with them, listen to music, play an instrument, play a game or just give them the opportunity to share some of their life stories. You will make an immediate positive impact on the lives of the terminally ill patients and their families. All volunteers will receive hospice training, a TB test and background check all at no cost to you. Our office is located in Simi Valley but our patients also reside throughout LA, Ventura, Riverside, County and the San Fernando Valley. We also keep a record of all Community Service Volunteer Hours if needed for school. Please contact Lucy at Serenity Point Hospice Care at email@example.com
Serenity Point Hospice care offers a hospice program and a support system for terminally ill people and their loved ones, whereby our highly skilled nurses, doctors, Home health aides, Social Workers, spiritual counselors, pharmacists, trained hospice volunteers, and bereavement counselors provide care and comfort to ease the pain and stress of the illness and loss of life. The primary case physician and attendant nurses will coordinate all aspects of the patient’s care. Home health aides help patients with personal care and daily maintenance.
Trained hospice volunteers are available to assist in many areas, from helping caregivers, to transporting patients when needed. Spiritual leaders and social workers counsel patients and loved ones to help them cope with the suffering.
Hospice is very beneficial to patients and their loved ones, and should be accessed as soon as possible, as it improves patients’ quality of life and is a tremendous resource for them, as well as family and friends. Respite care, which is when the patient receives full time care in a facility for a period of time, is one of the most helpful advantages of hospice. It gives the patient’s caregivers a break, as caring for someone with a terminal illness is very stressful and taxing.
