Area hospice looking for volunteers
Innovative Senior Care Hospice (ISC hospice) is the new hospice serving your community. ISC hospice provides a full spectrum of care and support to people facing a life limiting illness. Our mission as a hospice organization is to focus on physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects of person’s illness and also to include caregivers as part of the unit of care. This is done in the form of a multidisciplinary (or team) approach to care.
The ISC Hospice team consists of the doctor, nurse, nurse aide, social worker, chaplain and volunteer, all of whom make intermittent visits to the hospice patient and family to ensure they are receiving exceptional care.
Volunteers are an integral part of the ISC hospice team and there are no specific skills required. Some of the many ways a volunteer can contribute include: providing emotional support, respite for caregivers, errand running, light housekeeping and administrative support.
Often, giving of one's time to provide companionship and a comforting presence is the most valuable service a volunteer provides. While there are no specific skills required to be a volunteer, if you do have skills in areas such as massage, music, art, hair styling or pet therapy, ISC hospice welcomes it!
