About the Foundation

The Grace Hospice Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to increasing awareness of the importance of hospice care. The Grace Hospice Foundation was born from our strong commitment to improve our community. As a local business, we are dedicated to lives of those who live next door.

Our Mission

Our Mission is to promote the principles of hospice care, educate our community, subsidize care for patients and families, and grant the wishes of hospice patients.

We Educate our Community and Promote the Principles of Hospice Care

Medicare allows a hospice benefit to all individuals with a life-limiting or terminal diagnosis. Much of our community is not aware of this. Our mission is to educate our entire community about hospice care so they may make the right choice for themselves and their families. We are involved various educational programs with other agencies in the Tulsa area in addition to participating in the Green Country HealthCare Association. We provide educational seminars to civic organizations, churches, support groups, special interest groups, health care agencies and other community programs. Please contact us if you would like to set up an educational seminar.

We Subsidize Care for Patients and Families

Our care will be provided to all patients, regardless of their ability to pay. Our mission is to subsidize the care of patients that are without the Medicare hospice benefit or other private insurance, insuring that all individuals have the same opportunity for care. We hope to reach patients and families that may have otherwise be forced to weather this difficult time alone.

We Grant the Wishes of Hospice Patients

If a hospice patient could be granted one wish, what might they desire? We make those wishes come true, be it a trip to a museum, a baseball game, or a reunion with a long-lost sibling. We answer the wishes of hospice patients that otherwise might never come true.

The “Special Series” offered in spring, summer and fall, offers help for those people dealing with various loss and grief issues related to life in general. This educational opportunity provides skills and tools needed to move through the various stages of the healing process.

If you would like to donate your time, the Grace Hospice Foundation is always looking for volunteers and provides free, volunteer training.

Volunteers play an essential role at Grace Hospice, helping patients enjoy life to the fullest. Grace Hospice looks at each volunteer’s unique skills and interests when making assignments and provides training for all volunteers. Opportunities are available in the following areas:

  • Visiting Volunteers: Visiting volunteers share their time and friendship with hospice patients and family members in independent home settings and care facilities
  • Bereavement Volunteers: Bereavement volunteers provide support to grieving families with phone calls, cards and visits
  • Craft and Special Project Volunteers: These volunteers use their special talents to bring joy to patients. Some volunteers create handmade items (lap blankets, slippers, small pillows, etc.), or design art projects, while others sing or play instruments. Others may help with yard work or “handy man” projects.
  • Administrative Support Volunteers: Administrative support volunteers work with staff to provide clerical support at the Grace Hospice business office.
  • Special Events Volunteers: These volunteers represent Grace Hospice at various community events such as the Golden Age Celebration and the annual Ms. Senior Oklahoma pageant. Volunteers play an important role in the many events at Grace Hospice.
