Silverado Hospice's mission is to affirm the cycle of life by enhancing the quality of living for those at the end of life. The Silverado standard is to care compassionately for patients and their families and to empower those we serve to have quality of life options that afford them comfort and dignity.
Hospice volunteers are ordinary people of all ages with extraordinary love and a common bond; the concern for others. Our volunteers are an integral part of our Circle of Care team, meeting patient and family needs in many different ways including:
Providing companionship and socialization
Providing needed non-medical services, letter writing, running errands and assisting with family needs
Providing office support for direct patient care activities
Silverado Hospice patients and families experience L.I.F.E. ( Love, Innovation, Family and Engagement ) through our special hospice programs. Turn a few hours a week into priceless moments for hospice patients and families.
