Our Services

Dearest Folks at Hospice Volunteers of Hancock County,

My family and I can’t thank you enough for all you did to care for our mother. You helped make the last days of her life have more joy and peace than anything we could do.

She really appreciated all the special attention and love given so freely to her. She was just beside herself with the pleasures and caring you provided - the rides you provided around to places where loved ones used to live, and the stories of happiness and peace. It helped her prepare for what was ahead without fear or anxiety.

The Evensong singers are to be praised for the wonderful music you bring to families going through the hardest time in their life. Music brings so much comfort.

Thank you so much for all you’ve done. With LOTS of love,

Signed by the family

Celebrating 40 years!

We are so grateful to be recognizing 40th years of service in 2020.  Thank you to all of the volunteers and community supporters who help us keep this mission strong!

Free Online Support Groups

During these trying times, feelings of grief, loss and isolation that many are feeling have grown, and the need for support, understanding and affirmation is high. To provide this needed support, Hospice Volunteers of Hancock County is offering two online support groups, both free of charge and coming right up.

There are two support groups being formed: One for Those Who are Grieving the Loss of a Loved One who has died, and a Caring Support for Caregivers Group (of any type; the caregiving does not have to be for a hospice patient). If you are feeling angry, overwhelmed, frustrated or isolated, this is normal; you are not alone.
