Review for Hospice Of San Luis Obispo County, San Luis Obisp, CA, USA
Hospice of San Luis Obispo county staff thoroughly trains its volunteers in the complexities and sensitivities surrounding end of life. The scope of the training is holistic, including education about the dying process, family dynamics, cultural practices/preferences, diet, socialization, spirituality, durable medical equipment, non-medical solutions to pain/anxiety management and more. The staff does a great job of pairing volunteers to clients, plus they are always available for support and education. Hospice of SLO coordinates with other professional organizations that might be a part of the client's team, such as medical hospice, in-home healthcare providers and agency caregivers (just to name a few). This coordination is an exceptionally powerful benefit to both the client and their family/friends , allowing them to concentrate on each other rather than arranging help. In closing, it is an honor to work beside the staff at Hospice of SLO - their commitment to clients, volunteers and the community is humbling and stellar.
