  • Sitter services, paid in full by Hospice, that give caregivers much-deserved break from their caregiving responsibilities
  • Memorial Services, held annually, to celebrate the lives of those we have served
  • Assistance in paying utility bills for families with limited resources
  • Celebrations for patients and families on their birthdays, anniversaries, and at Thanksgiving and Christmas
  • Travel arrangements for family members who cannot afford to visit their relatives in hospice care 
  • Payment of prescription medications, medical equipment and supplies for patients without insurance
  • Sponsorship of educational programs for the medical community, church leaders and the general public
