About

Hospice is a special kind of care designed to provide comfort care as well as emotional support for patients and families of patients with terminal illness. We focus on enhancing the quality life and human values that go beyond the physical needs of the patient. We ensure that patients spend their final days in dignity and comfort. Volunteers are an integral part of the team approach we use to meet these needs. Share your time and skills by reading, playing music or simply providing companionship to our patients who need love, respect and compassion during this time of care.
