The Heart of Hospice care is the community of special individuals that choose to give gifts from the finest part of themselves. We thank you for your willingness to serve and welcome you to the Kaua`i Hospice Team.
Your unique talents and skills will be much appreciated, employed, and nurtured as we grow together to meet the needs of our community. We truly believe that the gifts you will receive from your participation in this organization and from the courageous families we serve will be equal to, or perhaps even exceed, the gifts you give.
Kaua`i Hospice Mission Statement
The mission of Kauai Hospice is to ensure the highest quality of life possible for individuals and their families facing a life-threatening illness; to provide bereavement support to individuals, and to promote an understanding of Hospice services.
Hospice offers compassionate care through staff and volunteer support to people in their homes so they may remain in the comfortable and loving atmosphere of family surroundings.
Because each family has unique dynamic and individual concerns, Hospice staff and volunteers are attentive to the needs of the whole family. We seek to alleviate the many kinds of pain experienced by the dying person and his or her family and to assist patients in remaining as much in control of their lives as possible.
Bereavement care acknowledges that grieving is painful, disorienting, isolating, and ultimately transformative. Support is available on a one-to-one basis with staff or trained volunteers, or in a group context where individuals are helped to understand the grieving process, experience it in their own way, and move through grief toward healing.
