Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The goal of hospice is to care for the whole person, considering his or her physical, social, emotional, and spiritual needs. With the family, hospice aides in deciding the patient’s care and future needs. Hospice care focuses on quality of life, making it - and its loss - easier for all involved. Patients achieve physical and emotional comfort, so they can concentrate on living. Patients are encouraged to stay active for as long as they are able: taking part in activities they enjoy, eating foods they crave, and accomplishing things they have always wanted to do.
Hospice care focuses on management of pain symptoms and emotional stressors of a chronic or life-limiting illness. Our primary goals are to manage distressing symptoms, alleviate pain, and provide a support system for the patient and family, therefore improving the quality of life for the patient and family members throughout the course of the illness.
