At Heavenly Hospice, we believe the dying process is a natural pat of life. To ensure quality of life through this process, Heavenly Hospice employees and volunteer must by compassionate and dedicated completely to the patient at all times. Our team and programs are developed to incorporate the needs and desires of the patient, family members and loved ones. Our commitment is to provide a continuum of care which support the patient and family in all aspects.
Hospice care is specialized care for the terminally ill. A hospice is an organization that provides this special care. Hospice caregivers visit and care for people at the end stage of life in their private home or in a nursing home, assisted living, etc. Each hospice is unique but all hospices share the same basic mission and philosophy.Heavenly Hospice’s philosophy is to provide support and care for persons in the last stages of a terminal illness so that they live life as fully and comfortably as possible. At Heavenly Hospice we believe the dying process is a natural part of life. Our team and programs provide a continuum of care services that support the patient and family in all aspects. Our philosophy is that patients have choices in how they approach daily living. We offer and respect those choices and do everything possible to meet the needs of patients and their families. We strive to educate families and take really good care of them. Our staff of volunteers can even work on weekends and evenings. We offer to mow a lawn, give a haircut, clean out a refrigerator, or just talk. We offer programs and services outside of just the traditional ones, e.g., pet therapy, music therapy, and birthday celebrations. Volunteers offer another level of support to families and work as a team alongside our nurses, home health aides, chaplains, social workers.

I volunteered for this organization for the last two years they are the most compassionate group I have ever met. They treat their patients with the dignity and respect that we all deserve. I am now volunteer coordinator at Heavenly Hospice, since I was a volunteer first, I know what our volunteers need and I offer extremely flexible schedules so my volunteers can fit in caring for a hospice pt with their regular lives.
