ABOUT HOSPICE SLO COUNTY

The end of life deserves as much respect as the beginning.

Hospice of San Luis Obispo County (Hospice SLO County) is an incorporated 501(c)3 volunteer hospice serving San Luis Obispo County residents who are facing a life-limiting illness, end of life or grief. We depend 100% on community donations, fundraising events, grants, bequests and planned gifts, and the time and talent of over 120 volunteers to serve thousands of individuals annually.

OUR VISION

We envision a community that recognizes death as a part of life; where dying and grieving are embraced as natural; where all have access to support services without charge; where no one dies or is left to grieve without comfort.

OUR MISSION

We recognize death as a natural and personal event. In this spirit, we support the community in working with those near the end of life and the people who love them by providing in-home support, caregiver respite, grief counseling, support groups, community response and education.

OUR SERVICES

Since 1977, Hospice SLO County has provided county-wide non-medical in-home respite care, emotional support, practical assistance and comfort to individuals, their families and caregivers who are coping with a life limiting illness.

Hospice SLO County Grief Counseling services offer individual and family counseling and group support to anyone grieving a death regardless of when or how the death occurred.

All Hospice SLO County services are provided at no charge.
