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 example, serve as a symbolic reminder that life is to be lived until you die.
These are some of the things our volunteers are currently doing:
Bingo in nursing homes
lap blankets for patients
preparing meals for patients
There are a multitude of things that can be done to help our patients and families. Sometimes the smallest act of kindness has the most impact.
SouthernCare not only provides end of life care, but we also have an obligation to reach out into the community. We go to area nursing homes and senior centers to do arts and crafts, bingo, and parties for special occasions such as Christmas, Valentines Day, Easter, Thanksgiving.....
