Carpenter Hospice provides individuals who are dying, and their families, with high quality palliative care in a home-like setting.
Carpenter Hospice is a much needed service in the community and a wonderful organization to be part of. The staff are committed to providing the best possible care and customer service possible to help alleviate some of the emotional and physical stress residents and their families are experiencing during this most difficult time.
Although residents die daily at the Carpenter Hospice, it is not a sad place to work. Our residents and families are grateful for having been able to spend quality time together.
It is a privilege to be part of such a wonderful organization.
Wonderful service, close to home, volunteers always baking
Office is in the basement with no windows, primarily data entry
The Carpenter Hospice is a wonderful organization full of professional medical staff on the main floor. I cannot say enough about the end of life care and compassion that each family receives when they find themselves travelling this road as a family member is treated in palliative care. The staff is patient and kind. Patient care is of the utmost importance and clearly the medical staff is a team that gets that.
After experiencing the main floor vibe and sense of 'team' I was excited to see a job posting that came up. I couldn't wait to be part of this wonderful environment where you are all working together to make such a difference.
Once you descend into the office basement it is a totally different scenario. I am a professional, organized, hard worker. I have never had issues on the job like I had here - needless to say I didn't stay long.
Every job is a learning lesson - this one I will never forget!
Perhaps things are different now ... be wary.
working for an organization that makes a difference in the community
basement offices, no windows, not much interaction, no support from supervisor
At the Hospice you provide care, all the type of care you can provide. Emotional, Physical, and,Spiritual. You help keep the residents comfortable by redepositing and providing personal care every 2-4 hours or as needed. The staff is warm and caring and provides emotional support not just to the residents but their family's as well. For me the hardest part of this job was walking with these lovely people to the end then see the pain of loss in the family. most cases its a bittersweet loss but none the less painful.
