We recognize that growth is a lifelong process, and strive to be stewards and advocates of the end of this process. We provide world class hospice care to patients and families in the form of pain and symptom management, treating the needs of the whole person: physical, social, psychological and spiritual. We neither impede nor accelerate death, but instead strive to improve the quality of life.
To enrich our patient and family experience by empowering our volunteers to become inspired members of our hospice team.
I have only been volunteering with Good Shepherd for a few months but it seems to be a great fit. The people working for GSH are truly professional and make helping others their top priority. I highly recommend GSH to anyone that is looking for a great place to volunteer with great people. The necessary tools are provided to you so you and the patient can both have a wonderful experience.
I have been volunteering with this organization for almost a year now and I am still impressed by how honest and caring the people that work at Good Shepherd Hospice are. I work in patient care and I am able to see the interactions between the nurses, chaplains and patients. The patients and their families truly know they matter and as a volunteer I know that I do as well. It is an amazing place to volunteer.
Good Shepherd Hospice is a fabulous organization to volunteer for! They are very organized and truly care about people they work with. I have never had a negative experience with them and have been a volunteer at Good Shepherd for over a year.
I have enjoyed making the rememberance bears for the patients family at Good Shepard Hospic. My mother was a Good Shepard patient and since her passing, making these bears for other has been a confront to me. The entire staff are the most caring and helpful individual there are.
