Mission Statement

The mission of Altus Hospice is to provide professional care with a personal touch. We accomplish this by focusing on both the patient and their family. We will treat the diease process with medical expertise while emphasizing quality living, not only physcially, but also psychosocially, emotionally and spiritually. Comfort, compassion and a calming presence are the gifts we bring to this service, and we are honored to walk with the patient and loved ones through this special time.

Description

Hospice is a concept of caring, rather than a specific location. In medieval times, hospice meant a refuge where weary travelers could find rest and comfort. As we know it today, hospice is where those with a life-threatening illness can spend their final days in peace, dignity, and comfort, surrounded by loved ones.
In hospice care, the emphasis is on palliative care and quality of life. Every effort is made to make the patient as comfortable as possible and fulfill the distinct wishes of the patient and their family. There is practical, emotional, and spiritual support available for all involved.
You can make an indescribable difference in someone’s life and in your community. Be the personal touch that people need as they go through one of the hardest, most emotionally draining times of their lives. Your presence can make this an unforgettable experience, not only for you, but for the family and friends of Altus patients.
At Altus, we invest in our volunteers. If you are interested in serving, we’d appreciate the opportunity to talk with you personally. All volunteers will be given a background screening, orientation and specialized training to equip you for your position. We will also offer ongoing training and support to help you grow the gifts you share with our patients.
