Hospice Volunteers of Hancock County is a non-profit, Maine State Licensed volunteer support organization, founded in 1980. Our mission is to provide non-medical assistance to patients and families who are facing the end-of-life, support to those who grieve the loss of a loved one, and provide education and advocacy for the community on death and bereavement issues.
HVHC work as team members with local physicians, in-patient and residential facilities, home care organizations, churches, neighborhood organizations and schools to provide care for individuals and families.
Hospice care is patient and family centered.
Grief is a natural response to loss. Grieving is hard. You are not alone.
Support from others who have also experienced a loss can help you cope with the pain of grief.
Hospice Volunteers of Hancock County provides those in the community the opportunity to further explore end-of-life care, death, dying and bereavement. Workshops and seminars are ways for the community to come together and learn from each other.
