Our mission is to enhance hospice patients quality of life by managing their symptoms and promoting their physical, emotional and spiritual well being. Our goal is to ease the emotional burdens of the patient's families as they experience the end of life's journey.
Sunrise Hospice Care is devoted to the care and comfort of people who are facing a life limiting ilness. Our team of staff members works with the patient and their family to create a plan of care that provides pain management as well as supporting their emotional and spiritual needs. Volunteers play a vital role in the overall care of the patient by providing support and companionship.
I've been volunteering with Sunrise for a year now and I can wholeheartedly say that I wouldn't have spent my senior year before college any other way. I know most people may wince at the idea of volunteering for hospice, but when you really consider the work your doing and the importance of it, its not a hard decision to make. The people I've met, patients and employees alike, have been more friendly, compassionate, and interesting than I could have imagined, making my time with Sunrise that much more enjoyable. Beyond that, the volunteer coordinator, Mick Parisi, has been an amazing friend and beyond exceptional mentor. I couldn't have asked for a better supervisor. I thank Mick for not only this amazing opportunity to gain new insight and experience in the world of patient care, but more importantly the opportunity to affect lives and be affected in turn. It has truly been a life changing experience.
I have volunteered with Sunrise Hospice Care for a little over one year and have found them to be professional and compassionate with their patients, as well as their volunteers. I highly recommend Sunrise for anyone looking for a rewarding volunteering opportunity.
I will recommend Sunrise Hospice because for the last year that I have been volunteering I been treated with respect and great cordiality. Sunrise Hospice doesn't make me felt pressured to make more visits then I can handle. I enjoy every minute; for they always treat me as part of a team. The volunteer coordinator is very kind and shows gratitude towards my contribution and efforts.
Overall Sunrise Hospice is a great place to connect and get to know amazing people. People that are struggling with health concerns and lack of family members or regular visitors. Eldery people are in great need of companionship and a caring heart. Volunteer now, don't hesitate.

I have been volunteering through Sunrise Hospice care for about a year and it helped me grow a lot. Volunteering is a very rewarding experience itself and working with people who value and care for their volunteers is another joy. Also, the company has a very nice volunteer coordinator who is very quick, organized, and kind. I am sure that your warm helping hands will be kindly treated.
