Boquete Health & Hospice 

Boquete Health and Hospice provides assistance, free of charge, when you have a temporary disability or illness. We re-assess your needs two weeks after the initial assessment to see what support you may still need.

Trained volunteers are the core of this service and provide help with:

  •  Medical referrals and treatment coordination
  • Grocery shopping, meal preparation,etc.
  • Providing medical equipment, such as a hospital beds, walkers, wheelchairs, etc.
  • Advising on obtaining in-home professional medical services
  • Dealing with the emotional difficulties associated with being ill
  • Coordinating and scheduling volunteer visits and respite care for family caregivers
  • Spending time with the patient, actively listening and attending to the patient
  • Transportation to medical appointments

Admission into health support takes into account the following criteria:

  •  The existing level of support available for the patient
  • The extent and type of illness
  • Whether the request is an appropriate use of our resources.
