AseraCare Hospice


At AseraCare Hospice, our goal is to improve the quality of life for terminally ill patients. This means managing symptoms to allow our patients to live alert, pain-free and with dignity, supported by loved ones and our caring staff and volunteers. Volunteers play an important role in the philosophy of care at AseraCare. They provide support to patients and their families that helps enhance the patient's quality of life and reduce the family's caregiving burden.

Our agency is a proud level IV We Honor Veterans partner. Through this partnership we have been trained to recognize the unique needs of America's Veterans and their families. This has enabled us to better accompany and guide Veterans through their life stories toward a more peaceful ending. As a level IV We Honor Veterans agency, we have implemented a Veteran to Veteran volunteer policy - we match Veteran volunteers with our Veteran patients.

Every hospice volunteer has something special and significant to contribute, and we welcome new ideas and contributions. It is a rewarding opportunity, and we would love to have on our team!

Description

At AseraCare Hospice, our goal is to improve the quality of life for terminally ill patients. This means managing symptoms to allow our patients to live alert, pain-free and with dignity, supported by loved ones and our caring staff and volunteers. We understand that each patient has unique end-of-life needs. Our interdisciplinary team of medical and social service specialists work closely with each patient and their family to develop a personalized treatment plan. This collaborative effort helps decide which hospice services will provide the best physical comfort, and emotional and spiritual support for his or her end-of-life journey.

Volunteers play an important role in the philosophy of care at AseraCare. They provide support to patients and their families that helps enhance the patient's quality of life and reduce the family's caregiving burden. Hospice volunteers may run errands, prepare light meals, stay with a patient to give family members a break, lend emotional support, provide companionship and help out with light housekeeping.

AseraCare volunteers bring a wide variety of skills and talents - such as music, companionship and crafts - to our patients and families in support of our hospice team. Every hospice volunteer has something special and significant to contribute, and we welcome new ideas and contributions.
