HospiceCare continues to monitor the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic and is responding to ensure the well-being of all of our patients, families, volunteers and staff while honoring government rules and recommendations.

Following today’s management meeting to address COVID-19 matters, we have updates to announce:

Interdisciplinary Team:

  • Effective immediately all IDTs will be conducted remotely using a conference line.  Your supervisor will provide call-in information prior to the specific IDT.


  • All grief and loss support groups have been cancelled as most are in excess of the 10 person group limitation suggested by the CDC.
    • Individual counseling sessions will replace support groups for the time being to increase our social distancing.


  • Effective March 18th, 2020 we will be suspending all volunteer activities for a period of two weeks.
  • Last week we chose to suspend all volunteer clinical activities, however, out of an abundance of caution we are expanding this decision to include administrative activities as well.

Administrative offices:

  • At this time we are limiting visitors to our administrative offices and asking the aforementioned screening questions.
    • All administrative meetings with outside organizations have been suspended or moved electronically unless it is essential to the operations of HospiceCare.
    • We are prepared with additional restrictions and responses should the situation warrant.

Travel restrictions:

  • At this time we are strongly encouraging staff to cease all non-essential travel out of state.
