Hospice of Ukiah Newsletter
Our Mission Statement
The mission of Hospice of Ukiah is to provide end of life and comfort care free of charge to everyone who needs it, in the greater Ukiah area.
Most patients would probably prefer to die at home if support services were available to the family. We provide the services of our coordinator RN/LVN, social worker, home health aide, spiritual care support and bereavement support.
We provide trained volunteers who will be teamed to a family to assist with their special needs and give a break to the caregiver;, and support during necessary hospitalization, or in a skilled nursing or residential facility.
Criteria for entering our program:
Hospice is for the patient for whom cure is no longer a realistic expectation and palliative (comfort) care is desired by the patient and family.
Palliative care is for those with a terminal or debilitating illness where life expectancy may be more than 6 months and/or they wish to continue receiving treatment.
We also offer volunteer respite care for caregivers of persons with Alzheimer's disease. Please check the information on the Alzheimer’s Respite Care page on this website.
Our local program is supported primarily by the generosity of the community through donations, memorial gifts, bequests, endowments and fundraising events, as well as the proceeds from our Hospice Thrift and Gift Store at 401 South State Street, Ukiah.
