Our unwavering mission guides our Board of Directors and staff to continually improve and profoundly enhance the services we provide to all people facing a life limiting illness.
"Our mission is to provide compassionate palliative , end-of- life care with focus and distinction to support the quality of life of the patients, families and community we serve."
At one of the most emotional and intimate times of your life, highly experienced professional staff and trained volunteers will be there to walk with you, respect your choices and help you retain control of your end-of-life care.
What families say about Care Partners (formerly Hospice of Washington County):
"You dear folks are as close to angels on earth as we will see. Thank you so much for the care, concern and comfort you gave "Mary" and us. I don’t know what we would have done without you."
"I believe the people at Hospice improved the quality of my father’s life 10 thousand fold were he or we to have tried to do it on our own. From the Shower Aide to the Volunteers, to the Nurses to the Social Workers every single person made my father feel like a priority, never an inconvenience and put purpose and meaning into every moment he had left."
"Most amazing was the process from the point of initializing hospice care to the moment when she passed. Being the primary caretaker, I had all the resources I needed both physically and emotionally."
"I just wish we had called hospice sooner."
The hospice philosophy of care recognizes that dying is not just a medical event but a personal one as well. Our specially-trained volunteers bring comfort and peace to patients and families in many ways. They provide companionship to patients in their homes, skilled nursing facilities, and assisted living communities. Whether you elect to visit patients, share a specific talent, or assist office staff, we value your gifts of time and talent.
As a Volunteer for Care Partners you can make a profound difference in a family’s life as a compassionate and calm presence who understands what they’re going through. Our volunteers share our calling to bring comfort and help to others when they need it the most.
