Mission Statement

As of April 18, 2022 Encompass Health Hospice has rebranded to Enhabit Health Hospice. Our mission has not changed only rebranding our name to accommodate our Home Health and Hospice side of Encompass. The "en" in enhabit is referring to our roots of Encompass, "habit" speaks to wherever our clients consider home, that is their habitation and we will meet them there to offer support with the same excellent care. Our mission is to provide "A BETTER WAY TO CARE", for our clients and their families. At Enhabit Health, we believe hospice is not a place, but rather a phiosophy of care. Our goal is to bring dignity and comfort home by offering compassionate care to patients and their families during the final stages of life.

Description

Enhabit Health Hospice is looking for direct patient and in-direct volunteers to provide care, support and comfort for patients and their families during the final months or weeks of life. Volunteers provide non-medical services and respite time for caregivers and family members. As a hospice volunteer, you will be given choices as to how much and what types of things you want to do.

A few ways you can help as a hospice volunteer is by running errands for patients and families, playing games or reading with patients, walking and caring for family pets, or even creating a photo album of the patient and their family. Administrative (in-direct) volunteers do a number of tasks in the hospice branch office. Tasks may include filling folders with appropriate paperwork, preparing mailings, making calls, answering phones.
