Mission Statement

"To provide the most meaningful and comfortable experience to our patients and their families during the end of life journey."

Description

From the start of the hospice movement in the United States, volunteers have been at the start of hospice care. Before Medicare-certified hospice programs, hospice was an all-volunteer program. Over the years hospice has evolved into a team of people each with their own unique set of skills, dedicated to providing exceptional end of life care to those we serve.

Volunteers share the area of interest that they wish to serve. Many times the volunteer may have life skills that they want to utilize when volunteering. Some of these may include:

  • Reading to a patient

  • Assisting in writing a letter

  • Listening to music with a patient

  • Crocheting blankets

  • Playing cards or board games

  • Light housekeeping

  • Shopping for patient

Our student volunteers are the jewels in our program. They have been inspired to become medical professionals because of their exposure to caring for our hospice patients who are nearing the end of life. Student volunteers have remarkable compassion and caring nature that brings tremendous joy to or patients and their families.
