One of our volunteers shares about what it means to volunteer for WesleyLife Hospice: "Being a volunteer for WesleyLife Hospice means the world to me. I have personally been through hospice with multiple family members, and being a volunteer for hospice now means I can make the experience pleasing for others. To know you are helping someone and comforting them makes me feel very happy to be a volunteer. The best part of being a volunteer is being there for someone who might not have anyone, and letting them know they are not alone. The connections I have made through volunteering are some that I will cherish and be thankful for." - Lindsey

Mission Statement

Guided by Christian compassion, we support the independence, health and well-being of older adults wherever they call home.

Description

We believe everyone should have the opportunity to live a life of continued growth, experience, engagement, and meaning, regardless of physical, social, or economic circumstances. Aging is an opportunity. The second half of life can be the best half!

Our comprehensive network of services is designed to fulfill the wishes of older adults to remain independent and active wherever they choose to live. Because we have a vision of transforming the aging experience, we focus not on limitations, but on possibilities.

We strive to be the thread that leads families to better solutions and binds them with the strength and support they need to maintain loving and healthy relationships. At WesleyLife, we celebrate a spirit for living!
