Ourprogram provides non-medical support by specially trained volunteers to individuals with life-limiting illness in their homes and assisted living facilities. Of equal importance is the direct support given to the immediate family members, as these caregivers struggle with what is often a first time and overwhelming experience for them.

N.O.D.A.

No One Dies Alone vigil program provides specially trained volunteers to sit at the bedside of patients who are in their last hours of life and would otherwise die alone because loved ones are unable to be present. In many cases NODA patients have no immediate family living in the area, or often has an elderly spouse who is too exhausted to remain bed side. A secondary comfort and service is to the nurses and caregivers at the facilities who do not have the time to stay with the patient.

Education Center and Lending Closet

Our lending closet of wheelchairs, shower chairs and walkers are loaned to those in need. We also provide a service to those who no longer have need for these items by taking them in as donations. We are also and education center, providing general information and guidance on placing a family member into hospice care as well as understanding what might be expected when faced with a terminally ill patient in the family. We take calls every day helping people understand what steps to consider when dealing with the loss of a loved one, including participation in our therapist-led grief support groups. We also respond to unexpected crises that profoundly affect our community (unexpected traumatic events).

Patient/Pet Support

To help patients with life-limiting illness keep their beloved pet by their side during their illness. Many times these patients do not have the means to care for their pets and they are tragically removed from their homes stripping the patient of the unconditional love and companionship our pets provide. Our program (in partnership with Conejo Valley Veterinary Hospital) provides volunteers who will walk the pet, feed the pet, bathe the pet, and offer minor veterinary care and supplies when needed. We also help to place the pet in a new/loving home when the owner passes.

Threshold Music Program

Music is an especially powerful communication tool when a person is nearing the end of life. It can reach those inner-places words so often cannot. Music can bring memories up to the surface, create good feelings in mind and body and ignite emotions that are otherwise hard to access.

The Threshold music program brings joy into the lives of our patients and seniors living in assisted living through music performed by local professional musicians and was started in response to the Covid-19 stay at home orders.

Whether it’s playing outside a local board & care facility or standing at the window of a patient who is unable to leave their room, this program brings joy and a sense of normalcy safely into the lives of people we serve.

Gulia Gurevich, is a concert violinist and founder of a local music school (Piano 4 Everyone). She was the first musician to bring her incredible gift to Hospice of the Conejo’s patients.
