We offer physical, emotional and spiritual support to patients where they live and their families to help them cope with a serious or terminal illness.

They provide companionship to include: 1 to 1 social interaction; listening to and reading to patients; sharing photos, stories or memories; playing an instrument for or listening to music with patients; helping patients to write letters; providing caregiver support.

Additionally, special programs for patient support include: conducting a Life Review, interviewing patients about life history and creating a DVD or journal keepsake for families; providing 11th Hour support, sitting by the bedside of actively dying patients; providing Pet Therapy by bringing your certified pet to visit patients; Providing Veteran to Veteran companion visits and support to our Veteran patients; supporting our office staff by filing, sorting, mailings and performing various administrative tasks; supporting our Bereavement Program which includes monthly phone calls to families or friends after the passing of their loved one.
