****VOLUNTEERS are now able to visit patients in their homes with COVID-19 precautions.

Do you have a heart for helping others and a little time to spare? If so, our patients and families/caregivers could use a compassionate friend.

  • Patient/Family Support Volunteers provide in-home respite care, which allows caregivers a few hours of much needed personal time. Talk, listen to music, watch TV, read or just be there to listen and hold a hand.
  • Companionship Volunteers spend time visiting with our patients in nursing and assisted living facilities who don't have family or friends visiting them.

Mission Statement

As a team, we combine compassion with the art and science of medicine to help patients and families live life to its fullest.

Description

Bristol Hospice works together with patients and their families to enhance their quality of life.

Combined with a compassionate support system, hospice helps to reduce the overwhelming stress and anxiety that can come along with caring for a loved one with a life limiting illness.
