Friends of Hospice

Although not the hospice provider, for 23 years, the Friends of Hospice have been augmenting and supporting hospice and end of life care. They are a network of volunteer friends, helpers, and companions.

  • Friends of Hospice increases public awareness of hospice, comfort-care, and end-of-life services.
  • They support and advocate advance-care planning through community-wide outreach.
  • They 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.
