About Hospice of San Luis Obispo County
Hospice of San Luis Obispo County (Hospice SLO County) is a locally based 501c3 volunteer hospice serving San Luis Obispo County residents dealing with a life-limiting illness through providing in-home respite care, emotional, spirtual, practical and non-medical support; grief counseling support through group and individual counseling services; education about dying and death for professionals and the community through classes, workshops, trainings, book groups and outreach programs.
At Hospice of SLO County we believe that no one should have to face serious illness, dying, death or grief by themselves. It's that belief that has motivated our staff and volunteers to serve our Central Coast community since its incorporation in 1977.
As the only volunteer hospice in the county, Hospice of SLO County does not bill any insurance, clients or their families and all services are provided without charge. We rely 100% on the generosity from community donations, fundraising events, grants, and the time and talent of over 200 volunteers to compassionately help more than 5,000 individuals annually.
