SilverStone Hospice, in partnership with our home health agency, is able to provide effective transitional care support for acute patients discharging from facilities or currently residing at home. Over the last year, we have been able to reduce unnecessary hospital readmission while providing personalized care in the home setting.
We do not provide 24 hour care at home; however, we do have an on-call nurse who is able to respond to any emergency 24 hours a day. We also have a medical director who can assist with pain and symptom management via medication 24 hours a day.
A hospice volunteer is someone who has the passion and drive to selflessly care and advocate for people during their time of need. Someone who is able to see past the patient's diagnosis and be make meaningful connections to bring them joy. A hospice volunteer should have the passion to consistently visit patients on a regular basis.
Hospice volunteers are important to the core of the holistic care we provide. They provide companionship and emotional support to our patients as they transition. This could look like playing a board games together, reading a book together, and simply listening to the patient's stories. Our volunteers also take part in our "no one dies alone program" where they are specially trained to wait alongside our patients as their time of transition draws close.
The volunteers are at the core of helping us create an experience that simulates activities and environments our patients enjoy as well as acting as an advocate for our patients. Their goal is to bring reassurance that what matters most is not how much time we have, it is how we live each present moment.
