Patient Experience Enrichment Programs
A variety of programs to enhance a patient’s life
Paws for Patients
Volunteers bring their certified therapy pets to visit with patients. This can be especially valuable for a patient who had to give up a pet. Patients love interacting with our four-legged companions!
We provide certified therapists to help relieve the patient’s discomfort. (Available in Chicagoland and Western Illinois)
Music and Memory
Our team will create personalized playlists to help our Alzheimer’s patients reconnect with their memories and find familiar connections in their lives through music. It has been proven that these types of connections can not only enhance the quality of the patient’s lives, but they can also bring about a noticeable reduction in pain.
Those who serve our country deserve our ultimate respect. Unity Hospice offers three programs specifically for our veterans. Learn more about these programs here.
We brighten a patient’s day by delivering donated flowers that have been repurposed into beautiful designs by our volunteers. (Available in St. Louis and Collinsville)
One of our talented musicians will come and play live music for our patients. (Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana)
We will partner with you to help customize an activity you would most enjoy. These have included getting one’s nails or hair done, painting or drawing, videoconferencing with far-away loved ones and much more.
Testimonial from loved ones
“We as a family often talk about the care and comfort that Unity Hospice provided to (our loved one) during his last months of life and we will always be grateful for the care and kindness you showed him. I can only wish that everyone at the end of their life would receive the support (he) had.”
