AseraCare understands the challenges that people and their families face when coping with serious, chronic or life-limiting illnesses. AseraCare’s mission is to address these challenges with compassion, understanding and the support of evidence-based clinical practice. We provide palliative medicineand hospice care as a way to improve the lives of patients and their families as they transition throughout different phases of life.
Hospice volunteers needed in St. Joseph's County, Elkhart County, Marshall County, and Fulton County and Kosciusko County to provide companship and emotional support to patients and families according to the patient's plan of care. Hospice patients are individuals with terminal illnesses with a life expectancy of 6 months or less. Volunteer support me be in form of conversation, handholding, simple presence at the bedside, recreational activities, and pet/music therapy. Volunteers have the opportunity to develop on-going relationships with patients and families throughout their illness, or may be involved in short term "vigi" relationships.
