Our professional hospice team and our trained volunteers serve the patients wherever they call home; whether it is a house, apartment, assisted living facility or nursing home. By recognizing the unique aspects of each family, its history and its way of dealing with lifes' challenges,Stein Hospice team customizes its care and compassionately brings a sense of peace and calm to patient and family at a time that they are most needed.
Our terminally ill patients are in need of caring companions who will help them live the best lives possible in the last months, weeks and days of their lives.
Our hospice services are coordinated and provided by an interdisiciplinary team of professionals and trained volunteers.

Direct patient care volunteers have the opportunity to create relationships with patients, offering them dignity, companionship and caring at a time when they need human connections the most.
