Mission Statement

Heart to Heart's Mission is to provide quality, compassionate, and cost effective services through its commitment to acheiving the highest possible levels of excellence and a continuous quality improvement program designed to enhance the quality of life of its patients and their families/significant others.

Description

Hospice volunteers show their caring in many ways by visiting the patient and family at home, in the nursing home, or wherever the patient resides.

You can Assist by:

*Reading books or news
*Running errands
*Making phone calls
*Writing Letters
*Preparing Meals
*Being a friend to the family or
*follow-up during bereavement.

If you are not interested in direct patient care, there are still many ways in which you can support the hospice team.

They include:

*Filing and light office work
*Making deliveries
*Making bereavement phone calls or
*assisting with community relations activities.

So what is Required as a Volunteer?

Many of the hospice volunteers have first hand experience with a life-limiting illness either with a family member or close friend. This often helps prepare them for volunteer work by being sensitive and supportive to the family's needs.

All volunteers receive training on:

*The philosophy and goals of Heart to Heart Hospice
*Patient and family rights
*Family Relationships
*The responsibilities and duties of caring for patients and their families
*Listening communication skills
*The physical and emotional aspects of death and dying
*Spiritual and cultural diversity
*Patient confidentiality.
