Ambercare Hospice offers grief support services to patients and their loved ones during the time of the life limiting illness and for a period of 13 months following the death of the patient. These services are confidential and provided at no charge to individuals or groups. Sessions can be held in the Ambercare office or at an individual’s home depending on that person’s comfort level. Ambercare’s staff is specially trained in end of life and grief issues and is committed to walking with patients and families through the end of life journey.
Support groups are offered several times a year. These groups are open not only to the survivors of Ambercare patients, but also to anyone who has lost a loved one, including members of the general community. In addition, Ambercare hosts several memorial services each year to honor patients who have passed away and provide a time of fellowship and closure for their loved ones.
Ambercare is looking for exceptional people with a tremendous capacity for caring to offer their services as a hospice volunteer. Hospice volunteers invariably say that this experience changes them. They learn to communicate in ways that increase their own appreciation of life, and their approach to daily living takes on a more holistic perspective. They gain a great deal of inner knowledge and are rewarded with personal satisfaction.
