Our Six Teams

Our volunteers steward people availing themselves to the Death With Dignity Act and other end-of-life choices. We work closely with families explaining the process, answering questions, and supporting them during these challenging transitions.

Our volunteers provide continuous bedside service. They are in attendance if and when a person chooses to peacefully end their life according to Oregon’s Death With Dignity Act.

All of our volunteers are well-trained by EOLCOR in this specialized field. They are experienced and committed to the people and families they serve.
