Our approach to care

Hospice is a change of focus to comfort, control of symptoms and quality of life. We offer specialized care for people facing a terminal illness. Anyone can make the first call; it does not have to come from a physician. Our team is available to answer questions and offer guidance on whether hospice is appropriate.

  • Regular visits by hospice nurses and aides for personal care
  • 24/7 access to on-call nurses 
  • Medications/expert pain management and symptom control 
  • Medical supplies/equipment such as hospital beds and wheelchairs
  • Social work services
  • Chaplains/spiritual services
  • Bereavement services for up to one year, support groups (open to the community)
  • Volunteers to assist families  
  • Physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech/language services
  • Complementary pet therapy (not available in all areas)
  • Short-term inpatient and respite care as needed
