Transitions: Neighborhood Care Program

Supporting individuals and their families facing serious illness

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a serious, life-threatening illness, you might find yourself with a lot of questions. You might be wondering where to go for help, what to do next and how to get through this. 

During this time, we understand that there are difficult decisions that you or a loved one must make. We are here to help by providing supportive, non-judgmental listening. 

Transitions Coordinator
Our Transitions coordinator will complete an assessment of your needs, help you access community services to assist you in having the quality of life you deserve. The coordinator can help with caring conversations and assist you with completing your health care advance directive. 

Volunteers
Our trained volunteers can help with companionship, providing a shoulder to lean on, help with errands, and providing a break for loved ones. 

Who is eligible?
•    Adults who live within the Farmington, Sullivan and greater St. Louis areas
•    Adults who would benefit from assistance in navigating the health care system
•    Adults with a non-curable illness and prognosis of about 12-18 months

What are the costs? 
There are no fees for these volunteer services. The program is fully funded through generous donations to BJC Hospice.
