Hospice is a philosophy of care that recognizes every person deserves to live out his or her life with respect and dignity, free of pain, and in an environment that promotes quality of life.
Hospice begins with a referral from a medical provider when life expectancy is six months or less. This specialized end-of-life care focuses on comfort with services that include medical, personal care, emotional support, and spiritual care.
We serve the person wherever they consider home. This may be an assisted living community, skilled nursing, or private home.
