Dying is hard work
“—not the physical part, but that part which is the inside of me, the work about who I am, who I have been, and who I will be.”
– David Kuhl, What Dying People Want
“Thank you and your team for all you did for Bob and me. It made it all so much easier. We grew to love the two volunteers you sent. Their approach to Bob was different and exactly right. They were so unstinting with their time. Two remarkable human beings! Thank you for staying in touch.”
Caring for those who are suffering,
“whether or not they are dying, wakes us up. It opens up our hearts and our minds. It opens us up to the experience of wholeness.”
Providing practical, emotional and spiritual support to individuals and their loved ones through the stages of dying, death and bereavement.
Hospice palliative care aims to make the last months of life comfortable, peaceful and dignified for patients and their caregivers by providing care, support, respite and advocacy. Our trained Hospice volunteers work as part of a caregiving team that could include community home nursing, doctors, hospital and facility staff, social workers and spiritual leaders.
