Yolo Hospice is committed to providing bereavement services to anyone in our area who needs this type of support. Their loved one does not need to have been a hospice patient. Yolo Hospice provides 40% more hours of bereavement support than is standard.
Educational outreach is another area we have chosen to commit more resources to than is standard. We offer education programs to both community groups and professional audiences. Last year Yolo Hospice reached more than 2000 community members through presentations.
All hospices that provide care to individuals living in nursing homes or other care facilities are mandated to provide trainings to the staffs of those facilities. Yolo Hospice consistently provides two to three times the number of mandated trainings in each facility.
We do this because sharing our clinician's expertise with other professionals can enhance the care all individuals receive at the end of life.
Our patient care volunteers echo loudest the volunteer roots of Yolo Hospice. More than 50 men and women from throughout the region provide companionship and loving support to patients and families - two to three times more hours then what regulations require. This adds up to a significant investment in volunteerism.
Yolo Hospice has come a long way in 26 years. As we care for each family and look to the future we cling securely to the values upon which this grassroots effort was founded, the focus on giving to the community that makes us unique.
