Mission Statement

AccentCare strives to provide excellence in end-of-life care for patients and families. AccentCare has developed several specialty roles, which allow volunteers to utilize their own strengths and interests. This offers a meaningful and rewarding volunteer experience, and enhances the quality of life for our patients and families.
