Do you have 1 - 2 hours a week to spend time with our patients.

We are looking for volunteers to visit with our hospice patients to help celebrate their life.
Volunteers can do so many things with patients, read a book to them, listen to music, take them for a walk outside, offer a compassionate ear, help with writing letters and cards to family members, watch a movie or their favorite TV show with them and so many other things you can do.

Patients enjoy having a special person who is there for them. You can be that special person.
Reach out today to find out how you can make a difference in the life of a hospice patient.

Have you thought about supporting the patient's caregiver or family members with a weekly check in phone call? Caregiver and family members need that support too.
Reach out today to find out how you can makethese supportive phone calls to family members and caregivers.

Mission Statement

Compassionate Care Hospice has defined as its mission to affirm life during its final stages by providing holistic compassionate care to patients and their families; by providing access to hospice care for undeserved or difficult to serve populations; by wise and efficient use of available resources, and by educating the community in order to provide them with knowledge regarding end-of-life and hospice care around quality of life.

Description

Hospice Philosophy
Hospice provides palliative support and care for persons in the last phases of incurable disease so that they may live as fully and as comfortable as possible. Hospice recognizes dying as part of the normal process of living and focuses on maintaining the quality of remaining life. Hospice affirms life and neither hastens nor postpones death. Hospice exists in the hope and belief that through appropriate care, and the promotion of a caring community sensitive to their needs, patients and their families may be free to attain a degree of mental, social, physical, and spiritual preparation for death that is satisfactory to them.
