The following are projects that are currently being working on or have
- Essential Oils:
Essential oils are a growing and widely accepted approach to alternative
healthcare, including palliative and end-of-life treatments. The aromatherapy program at
Hospice of Amador & Calaveras will be available to both patients and their caregivers
and will launch in the fall of 2018.
In September Plymouth-Foothills presented a check to Hospice of Amador to

With the labeling being the final step towards launching of the aromatherapy
program, patients and caregivers will now receive these oils at no charge.
