Understanding Hospice

Hospice is a type of medical care that can be beneficial to patients at the end of life and their families. Hospice focuses on comfort and quality of life. Our Hospice Family Care team offers compassion, comfort, and quality care when curative therapies are no longer effective in treating a life-limiting illness. Our hospice team will manage the symptoms of your illness where the focus is on your physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.

Hospice care can be provided in various settings including private homes, hospitals, independent-living, assisted-living, contracted nursing facilities, as well as our own Hospice Family Care Inpatient Facility. The exceptional care our team provides to each of our patients and families is developed on an individualized basis.

Hospice does not hasten or postpone death. Rather, we specialize in the holistic, core approach so you and your family may live this last stage of your life as fully as you can. Our goal is to make each day the best that it can be.
