We are committed to patient dignity, quality patient care, common courtesy, quality improvement, responsiveness and education that far exceeds the expectations of our patients, families and the medical community.

Description

Emerald Coast Hospice is a not-for-profit hospice organization who truly believes that every moment matters in the lives of our patients. Our volunteers are an incredible asset to our organization - and ultimately to our patients.

Some volunters assist with office tasks such as mailing, assembling packets of literature and documents, data entry, telephoning and filing. Others plan, organize and staff special events, work health fairs and expos, recruit other volunteers, make arts and crafts,(scrapbook/stamping) . We have opportunities for volunteers to work directly with patients-including emotional support, companionship & spiritual support. These volunteers often assist patients and families with added companionship, emotional support, and caregiver relief. Volunteers may also provide socialization and support such as reading to patients, playing games, assisting with letter writing and journaling.

Our volunteers help ensure that every moment REALLY does matter.

Would you recommend Emerald Coast Hospice - Ft. Walton Beach/Destin?

by Jeff S. (2010-05-27 17:17:11.0)
I began volunteer work for Emerald Coast Hospice in April of 2009 not knowing exactly what to expect. After my first year, I must say volunteering for a hospice provider is an amazing and rewarding experience. While emotionally difficult at times, the joy that I am able to give to my patients, and the smiles, stories and advice that I receive from them, makes it a very fulfilling experience. Additionally, the entire staff at Emerald Coast Hospice greatly respects the volunteers and treats them as a valuable member of the team. The atmosphere within the Emerald Coast Hospice office is warm and caring...truly feeling like a family. I sincerely recommend hospice volunteer work for anyone searching for a meaninful way to donate their volunteer time, and for anyone in Northwest Florida, I would highly recommend Emerald Coast Hospice.
