Help out with Silverado's Essential Oils Program

Silverado Hopsice is constantly seeing new ways to provide comfort to patients and their families. The Essential Oils Program us one such innovation that has proven to soothe and relax patients.

Every Silverado Hospice team offers Essential Oils. The theraputic program gives patients a safe, natural way to calm, soothe and increase circulation while helping to reduce the usage of certain medications. Essential Oils is available at no cost to patients or their famlies.

Silverado Hospice is looking for a volunteer to put these essential oils together in bottles, have them ready for the team to drop off to patients and their famlies during visits, take inventory of oils and supplies, and find creative ways to keep this program up to date and part of hospice plan of care.
