“You matter because you are you, and you matter to the end of your life.”
Dame Cicely Saunders, Founder of the Hospice Movement
We provide support to patients with life-limiting illnesses, their families and loved ones, while empowering them to live with dignity and comfort during the final season of life.
Hospice is not easy to talk about, but beginning the process early ensures a comfortable, peaceful transition of care. Most families say they only wish they had contacted hospice sooner.
What is Hospice?
Hospice is a measure of peace.
Hospice is not a place. It’s a holistic approach that allows a terminally ill person to experience his or her final days with dignity, comfort and peace. Our goal is to preserve the quality of life at the end of life. Hospice care addresses the physical, spiritual, and emotional needs of patients and their families.
Hospice care begins with a prognosis of six months or less or when other factors are apparent. Your new hospice team helps patients and families prepare for what’s to come, offering education and support.
