Mission Statement

The Mission of Canon Hospice is to provide quality, compassionate hospice services to individuals and families facing the trauma of a termial illness.

We are dedicated to helping people face terminal illness positively and resourcefully, to preserve their dignity, and to accept the challenges associated with this event (physically, mentally, emotionally and spirtually). Our desire is to empower the patient, family and friends to deal with these changes as they occour.

We are committed to educating communities as to what Hospice is and does, and to training volunteers withing the community to provide vital supplemental asssitance and emotional support to indiviuals and famlies served by Canon Hospice LLC.

We will provide opportunities for individuals to work through the process of life-changes that death brings, working through the grieving process and achieving a helathy adjustment for the future.

We will reach out to hospice professionals through education programs to improve the quality and accessibility of hospice to our community.

We will always be mindful of the great privilege we are granted through our hospice ministry to express compassion, respect, sensitivity, competence, hope, and love.


What is Hospice?

Historically, the term "Hospice" is a place of shelter for the weary traveler. Today, Canon Hospice carries on that noble tradition by providing patients and their families with shelter from the physical and emotional needs of a terminal illness. Our goal is to make a patient's last months as fulfilling and pain free as possible, while helping the family members to cope both before and after the death of the patient. Canon cares for patients in their homes, in nursing homes, and in our freestanding in-patient unit. We serve the greater Baton Rouge and greater New Orleans area in addition to surrounding parishes. Canon also now serves the Gulfport Mississippi area and surrounding counties.

What is a Volunteer?

A volunteer is a person that dedicates their time to helping others. A volunteer is usually a person just like you, willing to lend a hand when needed. Hospice Volunteers are needed at any time you may be available. Reasons For Volunteering?

A volunteer can be someone that has a family member or friend who has died or is dying from a terminal illness and wants to give back to someone else dealing with that same situation. Often times, a volunteer is someone who just wants to help others.
