Befrienders: Do you have an hour a week to befriend someone with a terminal diagnosis? Many hospice patients have outlived their family and friends or have very little support at the end of their life.

Did you see the story on FB about the 90 year old woman who left a note asking her neighbor to be her friend? It was heart wrenching to me. Her note said:

"...Would you consider to become my friend? I am 90 years old - live alone and all my friends have passed away. I am so lonesome and scared."

There is no greater gift than the gift of presence. Someone to walk beside. We offer training and then assign you a patient that lives near you. Most of our volunteers visit their patients once a week for about an hour. Volunteers visit, read, play games, play music, etc. No hands on care, just being a friend. If you are interested please email to hold a spot in our next training. Our only criteria is that you not have a personal loss in the last 12 months. Thank you for having the heart to serve others.

Mission Statement

Magnolia Hospice offers medical care toward a different goal: maintaining or improving quality of life for someone whose illness, disease or condition is unlikely to be cured. Each patient’s individualized care plan is updated as needed to address the physical, emotional and spiritual pain that often accompanies terminal illness. Hospice care also offers practical support for the caregiver(s) during the illness and grief support after the death. Hospice is something more that is available to the patient and the entire family when curative measures have been exhausted and life prognosis is six months or less.
