How You Can Help

Volunteer

Volunteers are an important part of the Mercyhealth at Home Hospice team. Our volunteers, who receive specialized training, give their time and talents to assist with patient and agency needs. Volunteers assist with clerical duties, visit with patients, provide respite for caregivers, and offer bereavement support for patients and their families in the home. There is always a need for these valuable resources. Learn more about being a hospice volunteer.

Educate

Mercyhealth at Home Hospice is committed to promoting public awareness of hospice and palliative care through educational outreach presentations to the community, service groups, churches, and health care groups.

If you are interested in learning more about our services, or would like another topic from our list of presentations, we would be happy to come to your organization and talk to you.

Donate

Although hospice benefits are available from Medicare, Medicaid, and commercial insurers, reimbursement often falls far short of the actual expenses. Because of this, Mercyhealth at Home Hospice relies on the generous support of the community to bridge the gap between reimbursement and expenses, and to provide critical services such as bereavement support, volunteer training, and educational outreach. Call us for more information on donating to Mercyhealth at Home or click here.

Gifts of Gratitude

Mercyhealth at Home takes great pride in offering high-quality, compassionate and professional home care to our patients, regardless of the services they require. Our nurses, home health aides and staff bring a wealth of experience with the hope of meeting all of your expectations and home care needs.

If you received outstanding care, you can let us know through our Gifts of Gratitude program. You can make a donation in recognition of your caregiver, and the donation will be used to help ensure other patients receive the same level of care. The caregiver will be notified of your donation so they know how much they helped you.
