Looking for an experienced Nurse Manager to provide leadership and supervision, strong team leader motivated by change and thriving on collaboration, strong nursing acumen and several years of nursing leadership experience.
Looking for a creative and goal-oriented Development Manager to design, implement, and lead VHOCC’s fundraising efforts. Experience and a broad skill set, mission-driven and team player.
VHOCC continues to be committed to its mission of providing hospice services to the community and is adjusting to the phases as defined by state health officials. We are entering Phase 1 cautiously, bearing in mind that most volunteers and people coming to our office fall in the high-risk category (due to age and/or underlying medical conditions).
The Lending Closet is now open with “parking lot” pick up for members of the community who need to borrow medical equipment during these hours: Tuesday 9 am to 4 pm, Wednesday 10 am to noon, Thursday 9 am to 4 pm, and Friday 9 am to 12:30 pm.
It is best to call first (360-452-1511) to ensure there is availability and to allow us time to prepare the equipment. We ask that you remain in your car or stay outside of our door (by the garage door on the West side of the parking lot)
Our office is running as usual, except it is not open yet to the public. But you can still reach staff from 9 am –4 pm M-F by calling 360.452.1511 or emailing [email protected]
Our hospice services also continue to run as usual for current and new patients, with the recommendations as per health authorities. We continue to accept new patients.
Grief Support. VHOCC is committed to continue to serve the bereaved has expanded its grief support volunteer base. As we are moving toward Phase 2 and a relaxation of the guidelines around groups of people in the same physical space, we have scheduled an in-person grief support group this summer. Call 360-452-1511 for more information on location and dates.
Spiritual Care. Given changes in funeral home policies and limitations on holding memorial and funeral services, volunteer spiritual care providers have been mobilized to support patients and their families at end of life. Spiritual care can be offered via phone to families near or at the time of death of a hospice patient.
Volunteers. Many long-serving, dedicated volunteers who are at high-risk for COVID-19 have been asked to stay home. VHOCC is recruiting new volunteers to help with essential services, especially in the area of deliveries. As we all adjust to the situation with the COVID-19 pandemic, VHOCC hopes your family and all your loved ones continue to be safe. Individuals and families who are already in the midst of an end-of-life journey and now facing greater uncertainty in these unprecedented times, are encouraged to reach out to VHOCC.
The organization remains committed to providing compassionate care on all levels and in all ways possible.Volunteer Hospice of Clallam County is grateful for your ongoing support during this critical time. Together, we will get through this, while standing with and caring for our community.
