Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The purpose of Hospice is to provide individualized and ethical care to meet the physical, emotional, spiritual and practical needs of people in the last phase of life, those dying from a terminal illness. Hospice reflects a spirit and philosophy of caring that emphasizes comfort and dignity for the dying. Our personnel make it possible for the dying to remain independent for as long as possible. Hospice emphasizes control of pain and other symptoms and dying in familiar surroundings. Hospice care is centered on the patient, family, and caregiver. Our personnel respect and respond to the unique differences in family or caregiver, lifestle, value and wishes.
Using an interdisciplinary approach of Hospice personnel, hospice provides palliative care in the patient's home, short-term inpatient care, mobilization, coordination of ancillary services and bereavement support.
Hospice affirms life. Hospice believes that through appropriate care and the promotion of a caring attitude, patients, families or caregivers are free to attain a degree of mental preparation for a death that is satisfying to them.
Regency Hospice values its volunteers as they play such a huge role in providing comfort and support to our patients and families. All of our disciplines work together and communicate on a weekly basis to discuss each individual patient and their needs. We meet two times a month with our Medical Director to also discuss any problems, challenges, needs, etc. The Volunteer Coordinator keeps the volunteers very involved and up to date on what is going on with a particular patient that the volunteer may be visiting.
