Recruiting Organization: Affinity Care of Virginia

Affinity Care Hospice’s mission is to provide the terminally ill patient and their loved ones with the

support and care they require to live their lives comfortably. Our Hospice team

strives to enable the patient and family to maintain dignity and quality of

life. Our goal is to provide physical, emotional, and spiritual comfort.

We strive to empower the patient and family by providing ongoing support for

family and friends for as long as it is needed.



We believe that Hospice care should be available to all persons with an illness for which there is no cure or for persons who elect not to attempt a cure, resulting in a limited life expectancy.
