What's New

Congratulation Class of 2017 Volunteers!

On Tuesday, May 17, 2017 our newest group of Hoffmann Hospice volunteers graduated from training. Together they make up a dedicated group that go above and beyond to serve the patients and families of Hoffmann Hospice. They will be assisting with companion care, Touch Therapy, events, bereavement, clerical work, and celebrations for our patients. If you would like to become a Hoffmann Hospice volunteer you can take the first step by submitting a volunteer application.

Heart Art Summer Camp 2017

Heart Art Camp is for children ages 6-16 who have lost a loved one. They shared their art projects with friends & family, enjoyed some music and pet therapy and even a “special visit” from #Bumblebee. Thank you to all of the families who participated in this healing through art event.

Special thanks to the volunteers from the Art and Spirituality Center – Mercy & Memorial Hospitals and our own Hoffmann volunteers (including Hoffmann Hound Penny and her handler Sue) that came out to make this camp special for the kids. #HeartArtCamp#HoffmannHospice #Bakersfield

Little Red Wagon

Hoffman Hospice staff worked with Starlight Children’s Foundation to provide Isabella and her family with their own brand new Radio Flyer wagon. The day before Thanksgiving, the little red wagon was decorated and presented to Isabella and her family. While many children enjoy riding in the iconic wagon this wagon opened up the possibility of a new set of adventures for this blue-eyed beauty! It not only allows Isabella and her favorite new teddy to be taken on walks with her family in comfort and style, but the size of the wagon allows for her medical equipment to be either placed inside it or have it wheeled safely along, out of sight. When your child has a life-limiting illness and your goal is to provide comfort, symptom management and enhanced quality of life it is never too soon to learn about hospice care options available for your child and family.
