The mission of Hebrew SeniorLife Hospice Care is to provide exceptional care to terminally ill patients and their families allowing patients to attain the highest quality of life possible.
Hebrew SeniorLife Hospice Care aims to provide the highest quality hospice service that is responsive to the diverse needs of Jews of all backgrounds and religious or secular preferences, along with people of all faiths and cultures. The hospice seeks to work in partnership with the Jewish Community and its many agencies and synagogues to provide thoughtful understanding of the spectrum of planning and choices for end-of-life care.
Hospice volunteers are the heart of a hospice program as people generously share their time, energy, and compassion with others at the most vulnerable time of their lives.
Volunteers provide assistance to patients and family caregivers. Tasks vary and may include sitting quietly with the patient or engaging in converation, reading aloud, reminiscing, crafting a photo album or scrapbook, transporting a family member for visits or errands, playing an instrument, reiki healing, light meal preparation, and many other possibilities to profide a comforting presence.
Volunteers assist in the hospice office with administrative tasks such as filing, answering phones, assisting with projects, mailings, and fundraising.
