I could not, at any age,

“be content to take my place by the fireside and simply look on. Life was meant to be lived. Curiosity must be kept alive. One must never, for whatever reason, turn his back on life.”
~Eleanore Roosevelt

Dear Hospice,

“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.”

I've seen and met angels

“wearing the disguise of ordinary people living ordinary lives.”

~Tracy Chapman

Mission Statement

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.

Hey folks, we are really excited about the workathon on the 17th (check out the event page if you haven't seen it yet) but we are a bit short on volunteers. Can you spread the word by sharing in your networks? And by signing up yourselves! This would be a great way for families to get out together and do some community service, even if it's only for a couple of hours of the day!
