A volunteer organization providing our Lopez Island neighbors with hospice and home support.
We are a non-profit, all volunteer organization providing our Lopez Island neighbors with professional case management, chore and respite services, errands, transportation, and maybe a friendly little game of cribbage. Grief support services and a caregiver support group help people going through major changes in their lives. And we have a wide variety of durable medical equipment like wheelchairs, walkers and shower benches available for short-and long-term loan.
Lopez Island Hospice & Home Support received non-profit status in 1997. Since that time, thanks to regular grants from the Lopez Island Thrift Store and the kindness of so many Lopezians, our volunteers have served more than 350 clients and their families over the years.
All our services, including the use of durable medical equipment, are offered without charge regardless of age, gender, race, or religion. Those with short-term, long-term or life-limiting illness or disabilities qualify for our care.
The need for hospice and home support on Lopez Island cannot be overstated. In such a small community, the loss of even one person is greatly felt. Thanks to our volunteers and the generosity of Lopez Islanders, we can help our neighbors stay in their homes during illness or at the end of life, enhancing life on Lopez Island for one and all.
