The mission of SouthernCare and its hospice affiliates is to honor life and offer compassion to individuals and their families when facing a life-limiting illness. 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 a symbolic reminder that life is to be lived until you die.
Do you have a desire to help those in your community? Are you a compassionate, friendly, and respectful person? Do you have a few spare hours to spend helping others?
