Beloit Regional Hospice volunteers are at the core of our philosophy of care. From the beginning, volunteers have been an important part of the care team as well as providing critical support in the office. All volunteers are provided with extensive training and are asked to provide only those services they are comfortable with. Time commitments depend on the availability of the volunteer and what type of work the individual will be doing. The volunteer coordinator stays in close contact with volunteers and provides resources when needed.

“Volunteer training not only teaches you how to help others to deal with their end of life, but also now you can deal with a loved one’s end of life or your own.”

What is Transitions?
The Transitions Program is a volunteer-driven service focused on supporting individuals who face a life-limiting illness. Services include emotional and spiritual support, education, practical assistance, and timely coordinated referral to a network of community resources and services. The program is designed to help clients and their families cope with the day to day struggles and to find the information they need.

What Does It Cost?
United Way LogoTransitions is a primarily volunteer-driven service and no program costs are passed on to the client. Community support through grants, foundation gifts, and individual contributions provide all necessary funding.

How Does Transitions Work?
Services are intended to support individuals who have a life expectancy of one year or less, if the disease runs its expected course. These individuals may still be seeking curative treatment. Adapting to the changes that accompany a life-limiting illness can be difficult, frustrating, and sometimes confusing. It can be challenging to learn to rely on others for assistance, to find necessary help, and communicate with family members about an illness.

Transitions can help empower you to make choices that affect the quality of your life during this difficult time.
The Transitions coordinator manages the program and the volunteers to connect families to community resources that they need. The program fills the gap by educating clients, providing volunteers, and linking clients to service providers. The Transitions coordinator also acts as a liaison between health care providers and community services and resources.

Transitions does not provide nursing services, medical equipment and supplies, or medications. The program works with clients to enhance their support system and helps them adjust to living with their illness.
