The purpose of Sierra Hospice is to offer aid and support to those persons suffering from a terminal illness.   This includes a multidisciplinary approach to care and bereavement counseling.  Our geographical service area encompasses the communities of Clear Creek and Westwood in Lassen County, and Plumas County including Chester and the Lake Almanor Basin.  Sierra Hospice's speckal competence stems from its rural character, with volunteers who are specially committed to the concept of hospice care.

The Hospice Concept

During medieval times in Europe, a Hospice was a way station for weary travelers and pilgrims to receive shelter, replenishment, and care.  Hospice, today, provides specialized health care services designed to meet the unique practical, psychological, social, and spiritual needs of individuals and their families who are facing end-of-life issues.  An interdisciplinary team of professionals and volunteers provides loving ans supportive care so that the patient and family may live as comfortably and fully as possible in the surroundings of their choice.  Bereavement services are an integral part of our hospice program including:

  • A full library of books & videos

  • Assorted brochures & handouts

  • A one-year mailer program

  • Workshops

  • Adult & children's camps

  • Social opportunities

  • One-on-one volunteer support
