Mission Statement

Hospice is a concept of care in which services are given to terminally ill patients and their families, usually in their own homes, or in home-like settings.

Hospice neither hastens nor postpones death, but affirms life, emphasizing quality not length. Hospice empowers patients to live with dignity, as alert and painfree as possible, while involving families and loved ones in giving care.

The goal is to develop an environment where patients and families receive satisfactory physical comfort measures and feel supported in working toward mental and spiritual preparation for death.

Description

Hospice volunteers provide supplementary, non monetarily compensated service which contributes to the delivery of optimal hospice patient care.

Areas of service include direct patient care and companionship, family support and bereavement care, office/clerical work, fund raising and community activities.
