Since 1981, Sierra
Hospice has been a volunteer, community-based intensive program.
It is dedicated to providing end-of-life aid and support to the patient
and their family. Trained volunteers are an integral part of this
program. Their sensitive and empathetic support makes it possible
for the dignity and control of care to be returned to the family during
life's final journey. Other interdisciplinary team resources are:
physicians, nurses, clergy, pharmacists, physical therapists,
homemakers, home health services, and funeral directors.
Our services are free of
charge - Hospice affirms life. Hospice recognizes dying as a
normal process whether or not it is resulting from disease.
Hospice neither hastens nor postpones death.
"What is it that I can do
for you? What is it that you need to share? How can we be of
help to each other"
~ Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
