Support Programs

Support Programs

Charity Care: Provides support to cover the cost of uninsured or underinsured patient care.

Children’s Program: When the innocence of a child’s life is invaded by the harsh realities of advanced illness—their own or that of a family member—special help is needed.

Community Bereavement: Bereavement services are available to adults and children experiencing grief, even if no relative or friend was on our Cornerstone Hospice program. Supporting groups, private counseling, and even an overnight camp experience for children and teens make Cornerstone Hospice the leading resource in addressing grief and loss.

Cornerstone SALUTES!: Respectfully celebrates veterans’ service to our country while providing care that recognizes the challenges unique to military families.

Education Fund: This fund provides support for furthering the education of staff and volunteers

Gold Standard Awards: This program provides our team with a fund that can be used to help a family struggling financially to meet the cost of many of the necessities of daily life.

Hospice Houses: These are places where patients facing life’s final journey can come and receive quality, compassionate care in a warm, home-like setting. Houses are located in Tavares, Clermont, Sumterville and The Villages.  In addition, we have hospice rooms at Orchard Park, Polk County, and at Winter Park Towers.

Cornerstone Hospice Care Center at Orlando Health:  Because Cornerstone strongly believes in-patient units are a necessary component in providing the best end-of-life care, we have partnered with Orlando Health to create this beautiful, much-needed facility.

Pet Peace of Mind: This fund enables Cornerstone Hospice patients to keep their pet at home with them throughout their end-of-life journey, then finds a new home for the pet when the patient is gone.

Volunteer Support: This fund helps support Cornerstone Hospice’s Volunteers.
