Badger Hospice

Badger Hospice is in need of a team of volunteers to sit vigil with actively dying patients. At Badger Hospice we believe no one should die alone. Vigil Volunteers will sit with patients while their family is not able to be with them. They can read, play music, or quietly hold our patient's hand during this time. The goal is to be a comforting presence during this transition. The Vision of Badger Hospice is to provide End of Life Care which maintains the dignity of the Individual who is facing the final stage of life and advanced illness. We recognize that each individual has the right to determine their own goals of care during the final stages of their illness and we focus on support, comfort, education and quality of life. Our commitment is simply to meet our Patients’ where they are at in their End of Life journey, wherever that may be. Our goal is to provide support and care that allows our Patients to live as comfortably as possible throughout their journey. Badger Hospice exists to serve our Patients’ and the individuals that are most important to them.
