SIGNATURE HOSPICE provides an individualized program of physical, emotional, spiritual, and practical health care for people in the last phases of life. Signature believes that providing care for a terminal patient is a sacred and honored opportunity to help people live as fully as possible while embracing the demands of terminal illness. The program is reflective of a spirit and idea of caring that emphasizes comfort and dignity for the dying.
Signature Hospice invites you to share your compassionate heart and spirit with patients and families in all Portland communities. Companionship is many things -- listening to stories of a lifetime of sweet memories, enjoying the beauty of nature on a sunny courtyard patio, reading poignant prayer or poetry, holding a hand in sacred silence. The majority of our patients live in a facility setting or senior community – independent living, assisted living, skilled nursing, memory care, or adult family homes. Since the patient is not living at home with their family, companionship volunteer visits take on an even greater significance. You are invited to share in the sacred work of hospice. It's not for everyone, but for those who have the courage and the longing to be authentically present, it is the place to be.
