Halcyon Hospice and Palliative Care

The Kingfisher, calm and at peace,
nested upon water, quieter of restlessness.


Halcyon Hospice and Palliative Care volunteers are a vital part of our care team and a valued resource to our organization. It is a privilege to welcome volunteers to the special world of hospice care – your volunteer support helps us provide the finest possible care and services to our patients and their families. We hope you will consider joining us in caring for the patients and families who choose Halcyon Hospice.
