Mission Statement

When someone is facing a life-limiting illness, there are many challenges to overcome. When the time comes that medical treatments can no longer provide a cure and are depriving the patient of their dignity, comfort and overall quality of life, Acacia Hospice will provide the care, support and comfort you and your loved one deserve. When you choose Acacia Hospice, you are not giving up; rather, you are gifting up physical, emotional and spiritual support with comfort and dignity. This is the true treatment plan that ensures quality of life at journey’s end. Acacia Hospice is a non-profit end-of-life care agency that relies on community gifts to provide specialized programming to our patients including Music & Memory, We Honor Veterans, and complimentary therapies.

Description

Acacia Hospice volunteers are treasured members of our hospice family and we are incredibly grateful for the love and support they bring to our work. We are always looking for community members who want to take part in the care we provide and there are many ways to do so. We are on the lookout for Patient & Family Support Volunteers to serve as companions to patients and their families, Administrative Support volunteers to help with a number of office and organizational projects, Pet Therapy volunteers who would like to bring their certified animals to brighten our patients’ lives, Music Therapy volunteers to play and sing with those we serve, and Veteran/Military Spouse volunteers who want to support other veterans & their spouses who are receiving end-of-life care. Additionally, we are always looking for people who like to craft to help sew, crochet, and knit quilts and blankets for our patients. We provide training, an amazingly supportive team environment, and lots of gratitude.

They were a God send when my mother was ill and near the end of her life. Also after my mothers dead they were and still are there for me. I honestly do not know what I would have done without such caring people.
