Seward Area Hospice, Inc. (SAH) arose from the Volunteer Hospice Advisory Workgroup working with Seaview Community Services under a grant provided from the Seward Community Foundation. SAH was formed in February 2016, and became a licensed volunteer hospice for the community of Seward and surrounding areas in March 2017. Our goal is to offer hospice services and palliative care services as capacity allows.
Our Vision- A fiscally sustainable volunteer hospice serving the communities of Seward and surrounding areas of the Eastern Kenai Penninsula.
Our Mission- To provide compassionate end-of-life care to enable comfort, dignity, and choice for the individual and family.
Volunteer hospices provide non-professional support to allow for emotional and psychological healing, peace, and comfort during the last months, days, or hours of the person's life. Caring for the person includes caring for the person's whole family, as they are affected. Licensed Volunteer Hospices provide care based in the person's home.
