Mission Statement

Hospice of San Luis Obispo County, committed to the dignity of the human experience, provides volunteer support, education, and counseling to those living with life-threatening or terminal illness, their families and the bereaved.

Description

Hospice of San Luis Obispo County (HSLO) is committed to serving all interested children and adults in our community who are facing end-of-life issues, community members with a serious or terminal illness, coping with the loss of a loved one, or seeking education on end-of-life concerns. Hospice SLO County is volunteer intensive, with no reimbursement by Medicare or other insurances, and relies entirely on donations, fund-raisers, and community grants.

Hospice SLO County's traditional non-medical hospice services support the terminally ill and their families with in-home services, the bereaved with individual and group counseling, and the community with community response services. We also provide education on end-of-life issues to professionals and interested community members, including reminiscence and life review services to seniors in residential facilities. Our additional support includes: Pet Peace of Mind - a program supporting individuals who are terminally ill to remain together with their animals through end of life with assurance their pets will be placed in loving, carefully selected homes once death has occured. Pawsitive encounters - certified therapy animals offering unconditional acceptance and comfort. Threshold Choir - bringing songs of comfort to the dying and their caregivers. All Hospice SLO County services are provided without charge.
