Hospice of Louisiana

Willis-Knighton Hospice of Louisiana

Willis-Knighton Hospice of Louisiana is a department of the fastest growing medical center in Northwest Louisiana.

Willis-Knighton Hospice of Louisiana provides skilled services and compassionate support from a team of professionals that includes the attending physician, medical director, registered nurses, social workers, chaplains, home health aides, music therapy, auxiliary services and volunteers. This team works with the patient and the family to provide the best care possible.

We at Hospice recognize that the journey of life is transition. We focus on the quality of life rather than the quantity of life by letting the patient live at home surrounded by loved ones and familiar possessions and letting the patient live life his or her own way.

I'm involved in volunteer work
It's very rewarding 'tis true
Helping people is what it's all about
There are a whole lot of things to do

To give people comfort to the end
And take some of the pain away
To help them in every aspect of their life
Up until the very last day

To see all of the other volunteers
Is very inspiring to me
To watch them go about their work
Is something everyone needs to see

I plan to volunteer forever
And work like a metronome
Then I can hear the words "well done"
when Jesus calls me home
