CARE IS A GIFT
Optum Palliative and Hospice Care has a reputation for compassionate and inspiring care that provides dignity and respect of life for those who so deserve it.
Hospice care is provided primarily in the home, nursing home or in an assisted living facility. The goal of Evercare Hospice and Palliative Care is to provide comfort care to your loved one in comfortable and familiar surroundings.
Optum Palliative and Hospice Care volunteers are an integral part of our patient and family care. Volunteers give time, talent, energy and ideas for end of life comfort, enhanced quality of life, hope and happiness. If you are looking for a rewarding volunteer experience, join our team as a Optum Palliative and Hospice Care - you help everyone succeed!
