Hospice Care

We believe that each individual and their loved ones deserve to live fully during the final phase of life. This means different things to different people. Our goal is to help you meet your needs: comfort, respect, joy, and support.

We believe you deserve the most advanced medical support and symptom management with the most basic of human caring.

Death is a natural conclusion of each of our lives on earth. This final road can be a powerful experience. We would like to help.

Hospice eligibility

The hospice program is available to anyone who chooses comfort care in the face of life-threatening illness. Patients are welcome regardless of age, race, color, sex, creed, national origin, or diagnosis.

The hospice team

Our interdisciplinary team is composed of you, your provider, caring nurses, case management, a dietitian, therapists, and clergy. These professionals work with you in a coordinated way so that care is planned, implemented, and evaluated based on your individual needs and wishes. Each member of the team believes in the purpose and goals of hospice care.

Our hospice team also works closely with the local visiting nurse's organizations to provide continuity of care in the home setting
