Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
We are dedicated to providing quality care to our patients and families. We believe that with the support of a caring hospice team, patients and families will be better able to cope with terminal illnesses.
Our goal is to provide the comfort, care and support needed during a difficult time, while respecting the choices of our patients and their families. We are committed to helping our patient live life to the fullest. A Caring Heart Hospice provides its services to all, regardless of ability to pay.
We recognize and respect the cultural diversity of our service area and strive to tailor our services to meet the specific needs of each patient and their family.
Most people do not want to die alone in sterile, impersonal surroundings, hooked up by tubes to machines and cut off from their family and friends and everything that's familiar. Nor do they want to die in pain. They would prefer, if possible, to spend their last days at home...alert and free of pain...among the people and things they love. The promises made by Hospice that an individual will not suffer unnecessarily in pain and will not die alone are profoundly important; these promises themselves can diminish suffering. A Caring Heart is dedicated to making this possible. A Caring Heart offers help and support to the patient and family on a 24 hours a day, seven days a week basis. Patients routinely receive visits from a nurse, home health aide, social worker, chaplain, and other members of the Hospice interdisciplinary team. The Hospice plan of care is based on patient/family perceived need. Long ago, hospice meant shelter. Refuge. A resting place on a long and difficult journey. Today, Hospice is an approach to medical care that provides shelter from the distress of terminal disease. Rather than prolonging life through cure-oriented treatment Hospice uses a combination of special skills and therapies to help the patient and his or her family live their remaining days together as fully as possible. For those who travel this difficult journey, Hospice means a resting place of dignity, compassion and support.
