Hospice Volunteers of Hancock County
Hospice is Dignity, Respect and Love
Hospice Volunteers of Hancock County was formed in 1980 as a community response to the need for specialized and compassionate end-of-life care. As an independent agency, we often partner with medical hospice programs in a collaborative team serving the residents of Hancock County.
Hospice is both a collection of services and a philosophy of care designed to support individuals living as fully as possible for as long as possible. It includes care for a person living toward the end of life, support for their caregivers and those grieving the loss of a loved one.
Hospice Volunteers of Hancock County offers non-medical services through our well-trained volunteers. We do not charge for our services and do not receive any state or federal funding, but exist through our partnership with the community. We are pleased and privileged to be a part of individuals' and families' end-of-life journeys.
