Hospice offers comfort and care to you and those you love by providing exceptional treatment and support in the final stages of life.
This comprehensive service offers physical, emotional and spiritual care in the familiar setting of your home - whether it is a private residence, group home, assisted living or skilled nursing home. Hospice provides care of the patient and family, which includes pain and symptom management for the patient through traditional medicine and music therapy, support services and bereavement and counseling support for the family.
If you or a family member are faced with a condition that medical treatment can’t cure, hospice can help you navigate the challenges that come with a serious illness. With hospice, you'll have access to a team of integrated health care professionals and volunteers that allow you to experience compassion and dignity at the end of life.
