Cedar Village's goal is to always enhance the lives of our elders. Patients who are part of the Cedar Village Hospice Program benefit from the care and compassion provided by the Hospice Team including staff and volunteers visiting with patients, reading to them and delivering flowers that have been donated by local florists and community members.
Several studies have now confirmed what many suspected: patients who receive palliative care and hospice, not only live longer than those who do not receive it, but also have a better quality of life, and less depression. They are less likely to experience medical crises, hospitalizations, and invasive procedures, which helps avoid a significant risk of side-effects and additional suffering. Please contact our Hospice team to answer any questions that you may have.
Cedar Village Hospice volunteers make a difference in the lives of those at the end of life. Your donation to the Cedar Village Hospice program will continue to support the work our volunteers to make their visits the best they can be.
