Do you have pet that has been professionally trained that you would like to use to bring joy to a patient's life for a little while? We all know petting a pet relieves stress and that is what our patients need. If you can supply documentation showing your pet is up to date on all his/her shot records and has been professionally trained for pet therapy we need you.

Mission Statement

Serving people with compassion and dignity.

Description

COMPASSIONATE ABOUT CARE. passionate about life.

At Good Shepherd Hospice, we believe that health is more that just a diagnosis and a treatment. It's a daily exercise in making this moment...this today...the very best it can be. We're here to help our patients achieve this goal - physically, mentally, spiritually...and for whatever that means individually.

We believe that in the passing of a person's life, there are also extraordinary opportunities for compassion, reconciliation, spiritual healing and renewal.

Our volunteers play a vital role in our Hospice program. From working in the office, to creating special projects at home, to visiting to provide companionship and ease loneliness, Good Shepherd Hospice Volunteers make special moments happen again and again for the patients and families we serve.
