About

Crossroads Hospice Needs YOU!

Our volunteers are members of a dedicated team who strive to provide extra love and comfort to terminally ill patients and their families. Experience teaches us that those facing their life's end often want to be remembered, to pass down their life experiences and beliefs and to know that their life mattered. As a way to help patients fulfill these desires, Crossroads Hospice helps patients create a Life Journal to pass on their love, experience, and advice. We help them document their blessings and gratitude for those they care about most.

Life Journals are compiled by volunteers from the community and this can be a great opportunity for volunteer pairs or groups. The volunteers spend time with the patient to gather stories and experiences. The volunteer partners with family members to gather photographs of the patient's life. Photos and stories are then combined to create a beautiful hardback book, a Life Journal, for the family to cherish for years to come.
