Is it time for Hospice?
7 TIPS ON HOW TO KEEP EVERYONE HEALTHY
We offer a no obligation assessment for your residents.
Learning about hospice early allows you and your resident’s
families to have time to consider options, ask questions, plan,
and decide when hospice is the right choice. As we approach
the winter season, we hope you choose Comfort Hospice as
your preferred hospice provider. If you’d like for a no
obligation hospice assessment for your resident or have
additional questions, please call our office and a nurse will
assist you.

Hospice:
Volunteers play an important role in
our hospice team. As a Comfort Hospice
volunteer you will have the opportunity
to work hands on with these incredible
patients, welcoming the benefits of
mutually improved wellness and quality
of life.
Comfort Hospice recognizes that
volunteers may come to us with a range
of strengths, interests and backgrounds.
We provide training and support to our
volunteers to assist them in finding
purpose and reward within our
organization. Volunteer as little or as
much as you want, even two hours a
month can make a difference in one’s
life.
If you are interested in signing up as
a volunteer please contact us at:
