SouthernCare-New Beacon Hospice
About SouthernCare-New Beacon
Our goal is to enrich the quality of life as life's journey nears its completion. Through supportive and loving comfort care, we offer patients and their families comfort for body, mind, and spirit. Our philosophy and culture are built around having highly experienced healthcare professionals, who are experts in pain management, and in providing the necessary support and education to patients and families.
The services you will give as a 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 cope with their many challenges and allows them time with their loved one. Simply holding a patient's hand can ease their mind and comfort 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 is small deeds of kindness that so profoundly enhance the lives of our patients and those who love them.
Volunteer candidates go through interview and screening processes to ensure the safety of our patients and their families. All hospice volunteers are given assignments that best suit their time, skills and interests. Training includes scheduled sessions, individual training and on-site training for groups and organizations.
