Organization Information

Mission Statement

The Carpenter Health Network will joyfully provide optimal patient care seamlessly across service lines to ensure spiritual, emotional, and physical healing wherever possible while always respecting life, fostering dignity, and preserving quality of life. Hospice is based on the belief that with sensitive, appropriate care and with the support of a caring community, terminally ill patients and their families can prepare to face the inevitable challenges ahead. That’s why every hospice aide, volunteer and every staff member must recognize that family and hospice go hand in caring hand. Hospice supports over 1.56 million Americans, and their families and caregivers, each year.

Description

Volunteers make a difference to patients and their families, the staff of hospice agencies, their communities and to one another. Volunteers are a vital part of the St. Joseph Hospice team approach to caring for those entrusted to us. Hospice volunteers have important roles, which may include family care, nursing home visits, working at a health fair, or helping with an agency project. Each person brings a unique mix of talent and interests to the hospice experience and each volunteer is needed and appreciated by everyone in the hospice community. Volunteers attend online training where they learn the hospice philosophy, the physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects of death and dying.
