Someday, you or a dying loved one may need us. Perhaps you need us today. We’re here to help you.
Although not the hospice provider, for 23 years we have been augmenting and supporting hospice and end of life care. We’re a network of volunteer friends, helpers, and companions.
- Friends of Hospice increases public awareness of hospice, comfort-care, and end-of-life services.
- We support and advocate advance-care planning through community-wide outreach.
- We make available and support enhanced training for volunteers serving those at the end of life.
- Friends of Hospice provides much needed comfort care items not otherwise available.
We want to help. Contact us today.
