  • Jason Clamme BS, Lower Cape Fear Hospice & LifeCareCenter, Wilmington, NC
  • Kimberly Paul MSW, Lower Cape Fear Hospice & LifeCareCenter, Wilmington, NC
  • In an economic environment where marketing and outreach budgets are being squeezed, it can be difficult for hospices to get their message to the masses. Lower Cape Fear Hospice & LifeCareCenter has overcome this obstacle by utilizing volunteers (patient care, staff, community groups, supporters and even patients and families themselves) in their outreach efforts. These “Faces of Hospice” are more than capable of getting the right message to those that need it. This session will be a hands-on, real world, and multi-formatted exchange of ideas and examples.

This information empowers the volunteer department to offer creative and unique ways for each volunteer to bring their strengths to the hospice team. Come learn how one hospice has developed a variety of creative and collaborative services using volunteers in non-traditional roles within the organization’s traditional settings in roles you might never imagine for volunteer service!

  • Vicki Rackner MD, Mercer Island, WA
  • Jill wonders what to do. After six months of grueling rehab, her father-in-law has not made a complete recovery from his stroke as everyone hoped. The doctors predict he won't get beyond this plateau. Jill passed along news of a promising experimental treatment to her father-in-law. He said, "Thanks, but I'm done fighting. It's time to just learn to make peace with my body as it is."
  • Someone like Jill may turn to you for guidance. How do you counsel her when she asks whether it's time to wage war against disease, or whether it's time to wage peace? What is your answer when she asks how family members can give up the hope for the victorious cure without giving up hope? And then how to heal the rift in divided families? Join Dr. Vicki in exploring this rich opportunity for healing, an opportunity to alleviate pain and suffering and to provide our presence, wisdom and experience to light the way during the dark hours of uncertainty.

  • Kathleen Roble MS, Suncoast Hospice, Clearwater, FL
  • Valerie Gibson MS, Suncoast Hospice, Clearwater, FL
  • Early hospice programs ensured that staff and volunteers were present with patients and families during the dying process. “No one should die alone” was the mantra and the very core of hospice programs and services. This presentation will bring back into focus the value of 11th hour (vigil) programs as part of hospice core services and provide insight into one hospice’s innovative approach that involves staff and volunteers in care planning for patient and family wishes during the final days and hours. Training for this important experience will be highlighted so that participants will be prepared to begin their own program or enhance the one they currently provide.
