Our mission is to be the leader in end-of-life care always, serving our communities with compassionate care.
The philosophy of hospice is to improve the quality of life for patients with a life-limiting illness. Hospice is an option when patients and their physicians determine that future efforts to cure the illness are no longer feasible or desirable. The focus of treatment moves from curing to caring. Hospice care is provided by a specialized team addressing the medical, spiritual and emotional needs of the patient and, equally important, the family. The focus of hospice is to assure the patient is comfortable, allowing them to participate in special moments and enjoy the days ahead. Hospice is not designed to hasten death or "help" someone die, but rather to help patients live the remainder of their lives as fully as possible, on their own terms.
As a member of our hospice volunteer family, you will embark on an unforgettable journey of compassion, fulfillment, and friendship. Every day our hospice volunteers enhance the lives of those facing a life-limiting illness. As a hospice volunteer, your contribution can come in many ways, from lending clerical and office support to spending time with patients or supporting family caregivers. Whatever role you choose to play, however small or large, to the families we serve your contribution will be immeasurable.
