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
