Providing charitable, compassionate care to the community has been the cornerstone of the Visiting Nurse Service & Hospice of Suffolk mission since we were founded in 1952. The generosity of donors helps us fulfill our mission to provide quality healthcare to patients regardless of their income, illness, insurance or ability to pay. Please see below for the many opportunities for you to support VNSHS and help families in your own community facing a healthcare crisis.


Memorial Garden

Memorialize Your Loved Ones Name in Stone in the Hospice House Memorial Garden

The Hospice House Memorial Garden provides a lasting way to memorialize a loved one. Bricks, pavers and granite pavers are available for purchase and engraving according to the donor’s wishes. A Memorial Garden Dedication Ceremony for donors and their loved ones is held annually in September. Orders must be placed by June to be included in the ceremony.



Whether you commit to a couple hours a week or a couple hours a year, Visiting Nurse Service & Hospice of Suffolk (VNSHS) provides rewarding opportunities for you to make a difference in the lives of patients and families facing a healthcare crisis. Some volunteers have specialized expertise, but most are people who want to serve our community and help their friends and neighbors. Some volunteers work with patients, while others help at the office, events or in the community. Volunteer opportunities are available 365 days a year.
