Give the Gift of Time
Amedisys Hospice of Masontown
The Hospice philosophy and services depend upon both professional and volunteer workers in
fulfilling organizational, patient, and family needs. Historically, limited funding reinforces the need for
volunteers to provide significant support to staff work.

Indirect care activities encompass charitable tasks that support the needs of the patients and families while working with the agency staff on special projects. These include, but are not limited to making phone calls to patients and/or their families, making homemade birthday cards, etc.
Bereavement activities include any support for the surviving family member of patients who have
died, providing information for support groups, or companionship for the bereaved.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
About Amedisys Hospice of Masontown
2183 McClellandtown Road, Masontown, PA 15461, US
We recognize the unique physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of each person. We strive to extend the highest level of courtesy and service to patients/families/caregivers, visitors and each other.
Hospice affirms life and views death as a natural process. Hospice exists to support and care for
persons in their last stages of incurable illness, helping them live as fully and comfortably as possible
and enabling them to have a peaceful death with resolution of loss.
Hospice will neither hasten nor postpone death but will help the patient and family reach a degree of
preparation for death that is satisfactory to them, offering appropriate care and support to fulfill
individual and family needs.
The welfare of each individual patient is the principle reason for the existence of Hospice, and thus
the recognition of the worth of the patient and his/ her family is paramount.
Hospice is dedicated to equal respect for all, regardless of race, color, creed, national origin, sex,
handicap, or socioeconomic status.
All engaged in Hospice Care, whether professionals or volunteers, must strive to meet the highest
standards of health care and individual caring.
As a community based agency, Amedisys Hospice is committed to providing proper care of the dying
patient and his/her family as well as educating the community on Hospice. Hospice Care is provided
to any patient regardless of their ability/ inability to pay.
