Community Home Care and Hospice

Organization Description: 

The services you will give as a Community Home Care & Hospice volunteer will profoundly improve the quality of our patient’s lives. Friendly visits enable families to keep their loved ones at home, around the people they love, and the things they love. Assisting with errands helps a tired family caregiver cope with their many challenges and allows them time with their loved one. Simply holding a patient’s hand can ease their mind and console their spirit. Volunteering takes no advanced medical training or great commitment.
It can be as simple as reading to, or spending time with a patient a few hours a week. It’s small deeds of kindness that so profoundly enhance the lives of our patients and those who love them.

Mission Statement: 

Community Hospice is committed to providing supportive, palliative, and loving care to terminally ill clients and their families through an interdisciplinary team.

Organizational Statement of Faith: 

Community Home Care and Hospice serves our patients as whole persons with a variety of needs, one of which is for spiritual care. The interdisciplinary team includes a Chaplain who provides sensitive and caring spiritual care to our patients and their families. Our patients often find the spiritual dimension of life becomes increasingly important as they reflect on meaning and purpose in living and dying. The transition to the final phases of life reinforces the value of religious practices and spirituality. Chaplains recognize the diversity of faith traditions and cultural backgrounds in our society and provide care that is appropriate and responsive to the unique needs of each patient and family. They see the patient and family as an integral unit and seek to offer services supportive of both patient and family. Chaplains coordinate their care with the patient’s existing spiritual care network and if requested may connect patients with local spiritual support systems. Chaplains hope to minister through a variety of means as appropriate (religious ritual, spiritual counsel, listening presence, emotional comfort, companionship, prayer, etc.) to affirm and nourish the patient’s spiritual quality of life. "Every patient we care for stays in our hearts." We affirm the importance of care when cure is no longer possible.
