DescriptionMission statement of SolAmor Hospice: "Caring is the Key in Life". Our mission statement succinctly defines our purpose as healthcare providers and our commitment to our patients, families and community. We care about our service, we care about those with whom we serve and ultimately we care about those who receive our care. As an intern, you can use your talents, skills and giftings to encourage hospice patients and families.
Through the work of a strong and committed team, hospice provides care to the terminally ill and their loved ones, assisting in pain management, care, comfort and quality of life. Hospice is available to patients when a cure is no longer possible. Hospice care focuses on how dying persons and their loved ones live each day, providing comfort and guidance along the way.

2) Provide administrative support by answering the phones and assisting with office duties.
