Special Programs

CaringBridge

Our team can assist patients and families in working with CaringBridge.org to create a personalized website where they can connect with loved ones and friends to share their experiences while on hospice. Individuals are able to record their thoughts and journal what is taking place so those they choose can follow the journey.

Grief Workshops

Our Bereavement Coordinator organizes Grief Workshops within care facilities that utilize Hillcrest Hospice Care. These workshops support both residents and team members in the facility to help them through the grieving process. Specific topics and activities are presented at each workshop.

We Honor Veterans

Sponsored by the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization, this program honors veterans who are currently on hospice services. We recruit other military veterans to volunteer for the program and match them up with current patients. The volunteers host individual Pinning Ceremonies for patients to recognize their service to country.

No One Dies Alone

This national program is designed to assist patients who do not have loved ones who can be present during the 24-48 hours prior to their passing, or for their family members who need respite or extra support during those last hours. Volunteers, who have received special training, stay at the bedside during the patient’s last hours. New volunteers are always welcome.

Specialized Therapies

Knowing that each person receiving hospice care is unique, Hillcrest offers three different therapies to help meet each patient’s individual needs:

Pet Visits – Trained dogs and owners bring the special touch of an animal to the lives of our hospice patients

Music Therapy – Trained music therapists or volunteers who are musically gifted bring their soothing sounds to patients

Massage Therapy – The experienced touch of a licensed massage therapist’s hands on patients with cancer or ALS often enhances their quality of life
