Mission Statement

Patients have the right to choose who cares for them in the home. Our mission is to provide comfort and quality of care in the home or in a facility through our core values and behaviors of trust, respect, understanding, service & safety.


Hospice Volunteers are an integral part of the Interdisciplinary team consisting of a medical director, nurses, therapists, social workers, chaplains and home health aides. Volunteer roles consist of direct patient visits at home, reading, music, pet therapy, reiki, veteran recognition, and other administrative duties. Hospice volunteers find their work emotionally meaningful and gratifying. The volunteer opportunity is extremely flexible based on the volunteers' location and schedule; volunteers are valued members of our hospice care team.
