Encompass Hospice provides quality end-of-life care to people with terminal illnesses. Patients live at home or in nursing homes or assisted living facilities. Our team approach addresses physical, psychosocial, emotional, and spiritual needs. We care for our patients as well as their families and loved ones, continuing to provide bereavement services for 13 months after the patient's death. Volunteers play an important role on the interdisciplinary team and can have great impact whether they visit patients, offer bereavement services, or provide administrative assistance in the office.
