Mission Statement

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!

Would you recommend Optum Palliative and Hospice Care?

I have been an administrative volunteer at Evercare Hospice King of Prussia for almost a year, and it has been a wonderful experience. Kathy, the volunteer coordinator, is such a nice person. She always has a smile on her face and makes me feel both useful and appreciated. The training provided is very good. Here, I learned much that I can apply to elders in my own family. Kathy has also been always extremely flexible with my busy schedule. There never are restrictions with regards to timing. She is always present and willing to answer my questions. Thank you to everyone at Evercare Hospice, because I gain so much from volunteering here!
