Hospice & Palliative Care

We provide care for people dealing with chronic and life-limiting conditions as well as people at the end of their life. Palliative, or comfort care, treats the whole person, not just symptoms. Palliative care can continue during Hospice care, which provides compassionate care in the home setting of your choice when you are faced with a diagnosis of six months or less to live. Hospice is not about giving up. It affirms life and lets you live your life to the fullest. Hospice care is provided by a team of professionals and hospice volunteers.

“My family and I would like to extend our appreciation for the loving care you showed my Dad. I know at times he was a tough cookie but he had a soft middle. He did get his wish, which was to stay at home and we thank you for that.”

There are many benefits to you and your family from both Palliative and Hospice Care. Making sure your wishes are known is an important part of Hospice and Palliative Care.
