Visiting Patients in need adds an element of dignity to their final days. It's an opportunity filled with possibility.

Befriender | This is an in-person opportunity. You would be assigned one patient/family to visit weekly as a friend. You will help reduce isolation and increase their socialization. Most of our patients are bed or wheelchair bound and cannot go or do much anymore. You need to be comfortable with the minimal covid-19 exposure risk of going into homes and facilities. Magnolia Hospice can provide masks or other PPE as needed. When we are aware of active covid cases you will be informed and we would not allow volunteer visits to that home or facility. We can provide rapid covid-19 tests for active volunteers currently assigned to and visiting patients.


One goal is to provide opportunity for meaningful life experiences.

Mission Statement

Magnolia Hospice is a community-based, progressive organization committed to providing the highest quality end-of-life care to patients and their families

Description

Magnolia Hospice offers medical care toward a different goal: maintaining or improving quality of life for someone whose illness, disease or condition is unlikely to be cured. Each patient’s individualized care plan is updated as needed to address the physical, emotional and spiritual pain that often accompanies terminal illness. Hospice care also offers practical support for the caregiver(s) during the illness and grief support after the death. Hospice is something more that is available to the patient and the entire family when curative measures have been exhausted and life prognosis is six months or less.
