About Us

Hospice Friends was established in 1983 by two kind-hearted souls looking for support of the terminally-ill.

Peg Rowbotham and Enid Gage, set forth to establish Hospice of Kittitas County to provide Respite Volunteer services, Bereavement, and limited wound care for the terminally-ill. Hospice of Kittitas County served the community independently until 1996, when we changed our name to Hospice Friends and partnered with, now Kittitas Valley Healthcare, to provide volunteer and bereavement services. We have continued our service of providing volunteers and supplies to the terminally-ill, frail elderly, and those facing short term medical issues. We now serve consistently over 600 individuals and families per year providing over $141,000 of services and supplies to residents of Kittitas County, free of charge.

Hospice Friends provides volunteers to help patients, along with their family and friends, to focus on what is most important to them – allowing people to spend time together, share memories, say goodbyes, find peace or care for one another. This time is often difficult yet many families report that Hospice Friends helped them to care for their loved one and find meaning and even joy in the final days of life.
