Mission Statement

Lighthouse Hospice provides an individualized program of physical, emotional, spiritual and practical care for people in the last phases of life-limiting illness, with an emphasis on control of pain and other symptoms. The program is reflective of a spirit and idea of caring that emphasizes comfort and dignity for the dying, making it possible for them to remain independent for as long as possible, and in familiar surroundings. Hospice care is centered on both the patient and family/caregiver. Hospice personnel respect and respond to the unique differences in family/caergiver, lifestyle, values and wishes.

Utilizing an interdisciplinary group approach of physicians, nurses, social workers, homemakers, hospice aides, volunteers, spiritual counselors, bereavement counselors and others, Lighthouse Hospice provides palliative care in the home, short-term inpatient services, mobilization and coordination of ancillary services and bereavement support.

Description

Hospice volunteers may choose to help in a variety of ways including: general office help, making visits to patients on hospice service, running errands for patients and family members, or, assisting with events.
