HospiceCare Charity Profile
We are the oldest hospice in the area, established in 1989, and the only free-standing, not-for-profit hospice in the area.
Our vision is based on the basic premise of making the world a better place by helping people
with terminal illness die at peace and with dignity.
To provide the very best care possible, a multi-disciplinary team shares the responsibilities involved in attending to the needs of the hospice patients and their families. The hospice team, made up of a medical director, the patient's primary physician, nurses, social workers, pharmacists, chaplains, volunteers and others, meets at least every two weeks to discuss ways to best meet every
hospice family's needs.
HospiceCare Volunteer Information
A service that our hospice patients and their families find invaluable is our volunteer program. HospiceCare volunteers are thoroughly trained and are committed to providing patients and families with support and companionship. Every HospiceCare volunteer is interviewed and must pass several detailed background checks before they are accepted into the program.
Our volunteers are caring, committed people who want to make a difference in people's lives. They are dependable and trustworthy and are sensitive to the family's needs, as many of our volunteers have themselves experienced hospice and know what a blessing that kind of support can be.
Our volunteers come from a variety of backgrounds and interests, but all share the common desire to do what they can to help lessen the burden of families touched by terminal illness.
