Volunteers act as an additional support system for patients and/or their families through the process. Simplistic, but important task such as playing music quietly on a CD, phone or instrument. Reading poetry/scriptures, or sitting with patient while their loved one runs an errand. This type of assistance is incredbly helpful for families with limited support or funds.

-Spending time with patients while thier family runs to the store or appointments

It is our mission 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 families and to empower those we serve to have quality of life options that afford them comfort and dignity.
Silverado Hospice honors the value of each life by empowering the patient and family to make supported choices in end-of-life care, enhancing comfort, relieving suffering and supporting effective grieving. We believe that Hospice patients have the right to continue life to the fullest extent possible according to their circumstances, and in fostering opportunities for growth and fulfillment. We further recognize patients and families decision-making rights in relation to continuing medical treatments and their right to withdraw treatment whose benefits are outweighed by their burdens. Silverado believes in equal opportunity and non-discrimination for our clients, our associates, and our community.
