Providence Hospice and Home Care is comprised of four major programs that occur in the patient’s home:
The Hospice Program: Volunteers assist with respite care, companionship, emotional support, light housekeeping, transportation, licensed massage therapists, fundraising, record life reviews, and assist with clerical work in the Bereavement Office.
The Home Care Program: Volunteers assist with respite care, light household tasks, transportation, and companionship.
The Carousel Program: Volunteers assist with emotional support to parents and children, running errands, reading, or fundraising. Volunteers are also utilized for pediatric bereavement programs, which include Standing Together, a monthly educational and support group as well as volunteer at Camp Erin, our grief camp for kids ages 6-17. Volunteers receive training and on-going educational opportunities throughout the year.
Volunteer Opportunity for Knitters and Crocheters: Volunteers are inviting other knitters and crocheters to help make lap robes, prayer shawls, scarfs, and hats for hospice patients. Knitters are also welcome to help with “Erin’s Bears” creating one of a kind hats and sweaters for the comfort bears at Camp Erin.
