Organization Information

Mission Statement

Hospice Hospice care can take place in a variety of settings, wherever your loved one calls home. Our compassionate care provides the physical, emotional and spiritual resources needed to make the most of every moment, with the extraordinary service you expect. We understand your needs and goals, and support both in each step of your journey. Hospice care may be right for your loved one when living with an end-stage illness, which has a six-month life expectancy, should the disease run its normal course. The benefit of hospice care is greatest when services are provided early enough within your loved one’s eligibility to: • Maintain independence and take control of the illness or disease • Complete important tasks • Organize personal affairs • Complete spiritual services • Saying goodbye to loved ones

Description

Volunteer Services

Hospice care is not only for the recipient, it is for loved ones as well. A team of doctors, nurses, social workers, spiritual care coordinators, family and volunteers work together with the goal of improving the quality of life for both you and your loved ones. Hospice volunteers are an essential part of providing support, and the process is mutually rewarding and beneficial for both volunteer and recipient.

Our volunteers are carefully vetted and undergo comprehensive training to learn about the hospice philosophy, relating to you and your loved ones’ experiences and how to best contribute to care.

Hospice volunteers provide companionship for you and your loved ones during their visits. Additionally, volunteers may be licensed to provide:

  • Beauty or barber services
  • Handyman work
  • Light household work
  • Errands
  • Therapy such as music or pet therapy from licensed service animals
  • Bereavement support
  • Services as needed for your unique situation xx
