A much needed service in the community.
Administrative Assistant P/T (Current Employee) –  Burlington, Ontario4 November 2013
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.
Pros
Wonderful service, close to home, volunteers always baking
Cons
Office is in the basement with no windows, primarily data entry

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.
Pros
good pay, warm and inviting staff.
Cons
hours are unreliable and sometimes not there.

Gained an appreciation for this stage in a persons life
Personal Support Worker (casual) (Former Employee) –  Burlington, ON12 February 2013
Daily assistance with activities of daily living and personal care. Notified Registered Nurse of any changes in clients’ conditions. Offered companionship, to clients receiving palliative care.

I learned that the end of a person's journey is a celebration too. I enjoyed pallitive care at the Hospice and combined with Medication care at Sunrise.

Professional, supportive management.

Wonderful co-workers that worked together and supported each other withiut effort. We helped with laundry, meals, bathing.

The hardest part was every life lost was heart felt.

The most enjoyable part was playing a part in someones journey.
Pros
observing and helping
