Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
St. Joseph's Hospice mission is to provide quality end-of-life care through listening, educating and responding to the needs of those we serve, our community and our team.
St. Joseph's Hospice provides individualized programs of physical, emotional, spiritual and practical care for people in the last phases of an incurable disease, 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 the patient/family/caregiver. Hospice personnel respects and responds to the unique differences in family/caregiver lifestyle, values and wishes.
Utilizing an interdisciplinary team of physicians, nurses, social workers, home makers, home health aides, volunteers, spiritual counselors, bereavement counselors and others, St. Joseph's Hospice strives to deliver state-of-the art hospice care services, support and palliative (comfort) care to our patients so they can live as fully and comfortably as possible.
To stay on the cutting edge, we also engage in a wide range of continuing education for hospice personnel and volunteers, as well as providing educational programs for other professionals and the general public.
