About

Compassionate Hospice Care is a locally owned and operated hospice. We desire that every person has the opportunity to receive care and companionship, as long as it is desired, until their last days. Some patients in our service have end stage Alzheimer's or other advanced types of dementia. These patients benefit from someone simply be present with them, providing comforting touch, playing music or looking at pictures. Some of these patients may not offer a lot of feedback or expression and appear locked in. Too often people in this condition are overlooked and the only interaction they receive is around personal care. We desire volunteers who will see the whole person and recognized the value these patients have. Volunteers are sometimes the fortunate ones who get a front row to discovering the treasure that lies within a person because they take the time just to be with them.
