Mission Statement

Encompass offers hospice care that provides comfort and support to patients and their families. Our goal is to neither hasten nor postpone death, but to offer compassionate care and dignity to those patients A coordinated team of professionals and volunteers provide physical, intellectual, emotional, social and spiritual support, and focus on pain and symptom management to optimize quality of life. Hospice provides the supplemental care needed to ease the burden on patients and caregivers facing a serious and advanced illness.

Description

As a hospice volunteer, you will be given choices as to how much or what types of things you want to do. Hospice is not a place, but rather a philosophy of care. It is a team of caring professionals dedicated to providing physical, psychological, spiritual and emotional comfort to patients and their loved ones. Encompass is looking for volunteers to provide companionship and support to patients during their final months and weeks of life. Volunteers provide non-medical services and respite time for caregivers and family members.
