There are many opportunities to get involved with Cornerstone Hospice and Palliative Care. Over 600 employees and over 1,000 volunteers contribute daily to the success of the Cornerstone Hospice mission, providing the best and most comprehensive care to patients and families. There are numerous volunteer opportunities including patient care, office duty, fundraising, health fair staffing to name a few. Our voluntary Boards of Directors and Advisory Councils play important roles in the leadership of Cornerstone. We celebrate our diversity and constantly strive to raise awareness of our mission and services. One way we do that is through participation in community events and parades. Our organization also collects food from employees and the community to help our patients and families who need it. We welcome those who would join us in these endeavors. In addition, a person can involve him/herself in our grief program as part of our community outreach, even if there was not a loved one on our Hospice program. Another opportunity through our Bereavement Department is the children's camps' need for community volunteers. For more information, see "Grief Support" on this website.

On this website, we offer areas under "Hospice Stories" that people can tell their Hospice stories or comment about the care they or their loved one received at Cornerstone. We appreciate what you have to say.

Among other opportunities to become involved, there are several fundraising groups in our communities who have dedicated themselves to Cornerstone events and projects. Among them are The Women for Hospice in Mount Dora and The Villagers for Hospice in The Villages. And, as always, since we are a 501(c)3, not-for-profit, community-based healthcare organization, we gladly accept donations and memorials which help to further our mission. If you have an interest in planned giving, please contact Desiree Coleman-Cohrn at 888-728-6234 or See "Giving" on this website.

We welcome your participation with us in providing excellent care to those facing end-of-life issues.
