Gerinet Healthcare holds sacred the art of delivering individualized hospice care to everyone, every day. We do this with conscious intent and a purity of heart because performance matters. We act with genuine concern, respect and devotion to make a positive difference.
Gerinet Healthcare is commited to creating a community of compassionate hospice care for terminally ill patients and their loved ones. We believe that every patient should be pain-free, comfortable, and surrounded by their loved ones as they approach end of life. Gerient Heathcare uses a team approach including patient, family members, physicians, nurses, home health aides, spiritual care counselors, social workers. and volunteers, who all work together to plan and coordinate care. Hospice volunteers become a vital part of this team.
At Gerinet Healthcare, our volunteer program is regulated by the state, Medicare, and Community Health Accreditation Program (CHAPS) and at least five percent of all patient care hours must be provided by trained volunteer. Whether working directly with patients or as support in the office, volunteers play an important role of quality of care we provide.
Gerinet Healthcare is a wonderful organization to volunteer. Providing assistance in this environment is very fulfilling and it allows us to bring company and joy to individuals during hospice care. Gerinet Healthcare staff is warm, caring, and professional; you can feel the warmth when you enter the doors. Most of us are unaware of the physical and emotional pain these families are experiencing during this difficult time. As a volunteer in this environment, not only are we able to give back, but what we receive in return is immeasurable. I invite everyone to give a little time at Gerinet.
I have been volunteering with Gerinet for about 2 years. I have found it to be very rewarding. I have been assigned to several patients during the past two years and feel blessed by being able to spend time with each of them. My dog and I provide pet therapy services; this has really helped the patients to experience joy and comfort during the last stages of their lives. My dog and I get back more than we give :)
Gerinet Healthcare is a great place to volunteer. I am studying for my degree in human services, field experience is part of my studies. I find Gerinet to be a place of excellence. The training is great. The staff is professional, caring and so positive. After my class ended I continue to volunteer.
I highly recommend volunteering with Gerinet Healthcare. It is a fulfilling experience.
