Hospice Care Corporation Charity Profile
Hospice Care is a nonprofit organization that serves twelve counties in West Virginia and Southwestern Pennsylvania with local staff and offices.
Hospice Care brings compassion, care and support to individuals and their families transitioning through life-limiting illness while providing outreach, education and expertise in grief support to the entire community.
Our care is best utilized when we can establish a plan of care early in the last-stage of life. A person does not have to be bed-fast to be a hospice patient. Persons receiving our care lead full and active lives as long as they can. An early referral can mean a person will be comfortable with staff and better prepared for the end of their illness.
Hospice Care also provides services to those living in nursing homes, or a home-like setting.
Hospice Care Corporation Volunteer Information
The Hospice Care Volunteer Program is an integral part of the interdisciplinary team. Volunteers were responsible for founding Hospice Care and they remain the cornerstones even today. When indicated and agreed upon by the patient and family, a trained volunteer is assigned to provide respite care and support. However, the nature of Hospice Care's services means we are always looking for individuals with varying personalities, talents and time.
