Mission Statement

The mission of SouthernCare is to assure that residents of its service locales have access to a program of care that enhances the quality of life for the terminally ill and their families. Care of the whole person is emphasized by providing physical, spiritual and emotional support to all medically appropriate persons, without discrimination. Efforts are centered on meeting needs by offering highly individualized compassionate care in the person's home or a home like setting. SouthernCare recognizes the value of dedicated staff and volunteers, and affirms each as individuals, as well as members of the Care Team. SouthernCare is dedicated to enhancing the care of all in the community by education, and by example, serve as symbolic reminder that life is to be lived until you die.

Description

As a hospice volunteer during college, I have found it to be a rewarding experience to come into lives of patients and their families. Giving just a few hours of my time truly made a difference in their lives and in mine. As a volunteer, I have supported the hospice staff by helping in the office and participated in health fairs at local hospitals, churches, and colleges. But I have found being a volunteer for patients and their families to be a fulfilling experience. I have formed special bonds and friendships with patients and families during the time I was a hospice volunteer. It has become my life's passion to help and support patients living with a terminal illness. Make a difference and become a volunteer with SouthernCare.
