Good Shepherd Homecare & Hospice believes that through appropriate care and the promotion of a caring attitude, patients can recuperate from their surgery, illness, or injury. Our goal and mission is to provide exceptional homecare and hospice services through a team of health care specialists to improve the quality of life for those in our care.
Good Shepherd Hospice needs a volunteer to support an elderly couple that live in a care facility. The husband is providing care to his wife, who has Alzheimer's. He would enjoy someone with whom to play chess, to talk with, to work on jig saw puzzles, or light activities. They live in the Sandy area.
The project will begin after a volunteer has completed 12 hrs of training. This training is required by Utah state law because of the vulnerability of the elderly. Content of the training is standardized, but volunteers are given material enabling them to proceed in a self-directed manner.
